Give user access to directory in another user's home folder

by Seth Painter   Last Updated October 20, 2019 01:02 AM - source

I have a directory inside my home folder that I'd like another user to be able to access. I created a group for him and we both joined it, and I did

sudo chgrp -R group folder/

He still cannot get into the directory, getting permission denied. I also did

sudo chmod -R 777 folder/

To no avail. Why isn't this wokring? Thanks.
