Read-only permission on a zip file

view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi, I have mounted an external hard disk onto my Ubuntu 9.10 system. the hard disk has three partitions; an ntfs, fat32, and a HFS+ Mac OS X (0xaf). I have a folder on the HFS partition called 'folder1' and want to copy it and all its contents over to the ntfs partition. The problem I have is that foler1 contains a zip file called 'file.zip' . This file has read-only permissions for some reason. As a result when I run cp -r folder1 /media/ntfs/ it copies all the files in folder1 except for file.zip. the ls -al for file.zip is -rwx------ file.zip . I have tried sudo chmod go+r and it doesn't work. Does anyone know how I can change the permissions on file.zip so that I can copy it over? Thanks (HowTos)
