Make sure you set the attributes of wiki.d "recursively". In my KDE file 
manager I  need to check "Apply changes to all subfolders and their contents"; 
in a terminal, I need to enter something like:

  chmod --recursive 777 wiki.d


P.S. I assume that you are not on a read-only filesystem, and it is not full 
but has some empty space. :-)
