http://askubuntu.com – I'm sure I'm missing something quite basic here, but I'm running Ubuntu through Virtual Box on my Mac, and so I need to give my Ubuntu user read/write access to the folder shared by the host and guest systems (named sf_VB_Shared_Folder). I performed and got the following: user@user-VirtualBox:/media$ ls -l total 0 drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 68 Aug 3 07:59 sf_VB_Shared_Folder user@user-VirtualBox:/media$ sudo chmod ugo+rwx sf_VB_Shared_Folder user@user-VirtualBox:/media$ ls -l total 0 drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 68 Aug 3 07:59 sf_VB_Shared_Folder Why are the permissions not changing?
