Would it be more:
find mp3 -type d -exec chmod 2775 {} ;

than …
find mp3 -type d exec chmod 2775 {} ;

There is the minus in front of the exec AFAIK.

spot on Patrick, that’s done it. Here’s a snippet for anyone following this thread:

without wanting to lean on anyone for a linux tutorial ( 😯 ) I guess the only thing that I’m not completely understanding is the 2 numeric in front of the 775 which has introduced the ‘s’ at the end of ‘group’. I have read up sufficiently on the permissions process but I haven’t seen this format before. Ron, Partick or anyone else inclined… care to elaborate? 😉
