I had problems with compiz setting and I make multiple accounts, now I want to transfer my information from all deleted users in my current account, some data I can not copy because I am not right to read, I type in terminal "sudo nautilus" and I get the permission for read, but the copied data is available only for superusers and I must charge the permissions for each file and each folder. How I can copy the information with out the superuser rights OR how I can charge the permissions for selected folder and all files and folders included in it?

You have to change the permission and also own the permission for the folder to which you want to access.

Following command will help you:

sudo chown -R saurav:saurav /home/user
sudo chmod -R 777 /home/user

Where saurav is the user to which you want to own the files and /home/user is the example of the user accounting you want to access.. You can change saurav to your user's name and /home/user to the user account that that you've created. You can also use this if you want to access files and folders of multiple users:

sudo chown -R saurav:saurav /home/user /home/user2
sudo chmod -R 777 /home/user /home/user2

and so on..
