Problem – Question
I had to change the user and group of a symbolic link.
The usual chown -R username:group target_to_change/ did not work.
When auto-completing the target_to_change like I always do, you will notice the tab complete puts a slash on the end like this “target_to_change/”. You have to remove the trailing slash or the aforementioned command will not work. I guess it does not recognise the name of the symlink unless the name is given verbatim.
