Folder Permissions

I've been having problems with folder permissions on ubuntu, oddly enough, trying chmod 777 on stuff wasn't really working well, basically I just did gksu nautilus then I modeled the "permissions" tab to the same as a folder I wanted permissions to be the same as. Apply to all files/folders within and viola it worked.

Hope that helps others.

Originally found the command from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1086624 although I have heard of it before, just haven't used it much.

Boxee Update DEB

I was hoping to download boxee for my recently updated media server.

Turns out that boxee has some issues with the package downloadable from here:

The original site I built the script to mimic is located in the source code.

The file which did the job for me can be found here:
Boxee Deb Fix

Good luck!
