I have started using Linux recently for development of a project and currently facing some issues with file permissions in the directories.
I have some libraries
.so files that I need to access from the folder
/usr/local/lib. When I check the files manually in the folder, the files show that I am not the owner and
root is the owner.
However, in a different directory, where I subsequently tried installing the same libraries at
/home/jade/cb/lib/, if I check the libraries, I do have the permission.
My C++ program has been stuck since it cannot access the libraries from these. I tried changing the permissions using
sudo chmod 777 -R *.* while inside
usr/local/lib but the permissions or anything don't change. How do I get rid of this problem? (Distro: Ubuntu 12.10)
