Have a question about Dolphin in Manjaro KDE, which I find puzzling. I want to modify some properties of a 1 TB drive I have on my desktop PC, and to that end, I open Dolphin, select the drive, right-click and select “Properties”. Then, in the “Permissions” tab, I change the Group to “sambashares”, then in the “Share” tab I tick the “share this folder with other computers on the local network”, tick “allow guests”, and give everyone full control. Then I click on OK, and if I again open these Property tabs, everything has reverted back to the previous values, so all the choices I previously made are discarded.
So, my question is, what is the purpose of making the user believe he can change these properties in this manner, when any and all changes are summarily discarded with absolutely no feedback to the user for why his choices are being ignored?
