Hello,

  Is there any graphical tool to configure users rights over files, like chmod does?

Thanks
Carlos Cesar

If you run kde as the super user, you can set file attributes. Try File Manager - Super User Mode from the system menu in KDE. Right click the file, properties, permissions.  I think you can do the same type of thing in Gnome.

without having to use KDe or X, try mc ( midnight commander), like old Norton Commmander, allows all types of file operations.

Carlos,

Take a look at Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/webmin/).  It is a full-blown web based unix admin tool.  In one of the modules (module Others | File Manager), you would be presented with Explorer-link (java-based), and there is a few button where you might be able to manage file/folder permission).

give it a shot.

cheers.
