Apply permissions to enclosed files doesn't.

I'm moving a system from an old Netware server to a new Fedora server and have copied a whole bunch of files. The problem is that I need to set the group name to something that lets all the authorized users have read/write access but changing the group name on the folders and using the "Apply permissions to enclosed files" function in Nautilus doesn't seem to change the group name on the individual files in the various directories. Is this a glitch or am I misinterpreting what this function does?

I tried going to the Nautilus group's site but all they seem to have is stuff for people trying to modify the program.

man chgrp,chown,chmod

chgrp -R <name of group> /directory

Not sure why Nautilus does that sometimes, never bothered to investigate, just open a terminal it's much easier. Could be that some of the files inside have different permissions.

Personally I never use KDE Konqueror or Gnome Nautilus to change permissions. try using chgrp from a command line. it would be something like chgrp -R to be recursive for the directory. check the man page for it.

Thanks for the replies. I'll be glad when they get the kinks out of the file managers. That's one area where GUI is a lot easier to navigate than command line. I had a Red Hat 8 server that files over about a Gig dissappeared from the window if you clicked on them.

[root@demigod-pc ~]# sudo chgrp -R users /eris
chgrp: changing group of `/eris/test': Operation not permitted
chgrp: changing group of `/eris/test.txt': Operation not permitted
chgrp: changing group of `/eris/test.txt~': Operation not permitted
chgrp: changing group of `/eris': Operation not permitted


How exactly is this command supposed to work when root doesn't have permission to do that?

I take it that doesn't help much either.

Perhaps it would help if I told you a bit more about this, although I'm not fluent in linux and may be misusing a few words.

I have partitioned my hard disk 4 ways, to have a windows partition, a linux partition, a parition that's visible in both linux and windows, and a swap partition. eris is the partition that's supposed to be visible in linux and windows. not that that matters because I can't find the drivers for my ethernet adapter for windows 2000, and that partition is completely useless at the moment.

I think eris is a vfat partition. I interpreted that to mean that it was visible in windows as a fat32 partition.

If there's a better way to do that, let me know, I'd rather it be done the easy way.

Has anyone put this into Nautilus developers as a bug? It does it on my machine as well with Fedora 9.
