I have a user that is constantly adding things to there /usr/lib folder...but the only way they were able to copy the files successfully was as root.
So as the root user, I change the permissions of the folder so that she could read/write the folder.
But the permissions have reverted to the old and she is unable to add the files unless she is the super user. Which is a step that I'd like to avoid.
I'm not concerned with them screwing up there OS.
My question, how do I set the permissions of /usr/lib so that she can add/write/edit/read files and that they don't change to the original?
(OS = Mandrake 10.1)
