    Been trying to troubleshoot this to no avail. I have a shared folder on one PC (Linux Mint) and I've created and copied some files from another machine to it (LXLE). After copying the files to the Mint PC, I can't move or delete the files, I get permission denied messages (the folder has rwe privileges for everyone set for it).
    I can delete them from the other PC, though. What am I missing here?

    What is the exact output from
    Code:
    ls -l
    while in the folder?

    The last three are the folders from the other PC. Do I have to change permissions on that one, too?

    drwxrwxr-x 5 nym nym 4096 Jan 14 08:58 PLX
    drwxrwxrwx 14 nym nym 4096 Mar 15 2013 DWV
    drwxr-xr-x 3 nobody nogroup 4096 Feb 8 09:46 HG
    drwxr-xr-x 3 nobody nogroup 4096 Feb 8 09:23 MS
    drwxr-xr-x 4 nobody nogroup 4096 Feb 8 09:24 MiS
