Recently, I went to create a folder in my home folder and I was told that I do not have the permission to do so. I thought this was rather weird since I should own my home folder (it says it's owned by root), and I have created folders in there before. My quick and simple solution was to use root to allow everybody write access to the folder, but then I get a warning when I log back into my user. Thoughts?

As root try, chown username: /home/user_directory
