I have a folder owned by
root:admin. I would like to change permissions of all files inside, so I can edit them without
sudo, but recursive chmod fails:
$ sudo chmod -R u+w some-folder/
does nothing. Any ideas how to fix it?
At the same time changing permission to a single file works seamlessly.
I installed a Python package from GitHub repository via
pip, as an editable install. I am contributing some changes to it, but doing
sudo for every edit and every
git command is not convenient (I guess - neither safe).
$ sudo chmod -v -R u+w some-folder/
Path is below:
