See who has Ownership..
Open Dolphin (or equivalent) and navigate to /media/disk or wherever the drive is mounted. Right click and choose 'Properties'. Then click the tab 'Permissions'. At the bottom where it says 'Ownership' who does it say for User: and Group:?
If it is you for 'User' and root for 'Group' then check if you can add a dot file to change the color of the folder manually..
Go into the folder you want to change the color and right click.
Create New -> Text File...
Then name the new file .directory
Open the new .directory file with KWrite and add:
(Close KWrite and 'Save')
yes, permissions are as you stated.
I created the .directory and that file is green.the folder that contains it is stil unchanged.It's a questonmark. I every other linux distro, it ws green. There alredy ws a .directory inthat flder from using with previous linux distro. I edited specifically to your directions.
Maybe I should jsut delete it and create anew file?
EDIT -- in trying to now edit that file, I get the following message:
The desktop entry file /media/My Passport/MSMoney/.directory has no Type=... entry.
EDIT EDIT -- I closed the HD and re-opened and the fler in queston is now green!:) Yippee!:)
However, I can't edit that .directory file. Still getting that error mesage.
