I broke my Mac Mini, trying set some permissions on some folders for web-development, but somehow ended up removing permissions from everything.
I managed to restore permissions, but have had a few issues since, namely the folder icons on the sidebar in Finder are not reflecting the icons they should be.
The desktop also seems slow to refresh when saving a file to it. They don't appear until I do another action.
Is this something I can fix in Terminal or elsewhere to restore everything back to how it was? Will I have to resort to reinstalling Mavericks?
Alternatively, will restoring from my Time Machine have an impact on things like these folder icons.
folder permissions when running ls -le as per answer below
