Description antonio 2021-10-29 19:34:49 UTC

1. Create a file on the desktop

2. Click on the mouse right button -> Properties -> Permissions


Unable to change user/group.

Note that the same operation made in the Dolphin (same dialog box) is possible because the fields are editable.


That the properties window called from the desktop has the same functionality as the dialog box called by Dolphin (also, when the user changes user/group, you must automatically update the desktop otherwise the previous values are shown).
