Re: Can't edit in "Personal" commentary module
If you're in the directory isn't the dot forward slash ./ redundant?

can't you just use * with your chown?

Eg sudo chown *

Absolutely. Even though they mean the exact same thing, I just can't bring myself to be that implicit with path declarations wink

Personally when I did it I actually typed

sudo chown <your_username> /usr/share/sword/modules/comments/rawfiles/personal/*

(obviously replacing <your_username> with your actual username ie sudo chown tom ...)

And of course this is working with the assumption that you're on an Linux distro that uses sudo and that your files are installed in the /usr/share/sword directory.

I just wrote an answer that I felt would be easier for people to use smile
