File ownership only needs to be changed if the files are owned by a different user than you. You can verify that you own the files by opening Terminal and entering:
ls -ld (hit spacebar, drag one of the files to the Terminal window, press return)
If you see your username in the results, something like this:
-rw-r--r--@ 1 BrushyHillGuide wheel 4781 Mar 3 15:03 /path/to/file
...then nothing more needs to be done.
PS Terminal not displaying your password as you type it is normal. Just enter it and press return.
lower case L in ls.
There is no self test when terminal opens.
