    Right click – Properties, and check the permissions on that folder

    you are not the owner so you cannot change these permissions.
    i am getting this in the permission tab.

  4. Lasher says:

    you need to browse as root before changing the permissions dewd.
    $ sudo nautilus
    do it from there but be careful when browsing as root you dont delete and edit stuff because you could stuff it all up real good.
