Hello,

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

Thanks

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.
