drwxrwxrwx   2 guest1   guest1   4096 Mar 23 00:28 guest1
drwxrwxrwx   2 guest2   public   4096 Mar 23 01:35 guest2

guest1 works fine.

but guest2 is a problem.  When I log into his share - I see a load of linux files there.
How do I change this?

Do you want to a folder where both grahamr and guest1 would share files?

If so, why don't you put both of them into the same group.  Then give the folder the same group

#So lets say you want to make a group common

useradd common

 
#Add both the users to this group
usermod -G common grahamr
usermod -G common guest1

#lets say /share is the folder that they want to share
chown :common /share
chmod g+rwx /share

Open in new window


Now both the users can share files in this particular folder
