I am trying to download skype , but can’t find the one i want in yay (there is non that i think works better than the one posted on (https://www.tecmint.com/install-skype-in-arch-linux/), my opinion only, because those posted in yay are of funny names (such purple skype web and skypeweb stuff).
Hence i followed the steps on techmint.
I think i got stuck at step 3:
$ sudo chown -R tecmint:users skypeforlinux-stable-bin
The folder called “skypeforlinux-stable-bin” has indeed being created under /home.
So i entered this cmd, [enos-andrew@enos-andrew-pc ~]$ sudo chown :enos-andrew skypeforlinux-stable-bin
*** I have read the wiki about chown article, but not sure how to enter the group name: and :user name .
If i want to change the ownership of skypeforlinux-stable-bin folder, i should be at a level “outside” of that folder, right ?
so i manage to execute this command without error…
So , the first enos-andrew: is my user name.
the 2nd :enos-andrew is my group name.
-R recursive (i missed out this during typing)
How do you tell what is my group name ? i was pondering where to find my group name.
can i just type either group name or user name instead of both user and group name ?
I have looked up the web:
This is the way to know the owner and group of a particular folder $ stat ~/skypeforlinux-stable-bin/
I need to do this is because i am cloning the git using “sudo” which is super user acc.
when the git is cloned, it creates a folder under the super user acc. .
hence in order for my normal acc to works on it, i have to change the ownership of the created folder to my normal acc name.
