I want to create a directory with all permission which Download/Document has. and I want to mount that directory to the Places where we can see the Desktop, Downloads ( Left Side Panel ), which will be accessible to all users not only root.

Any help will be appreciated.

Create a directory /home/shared accessible to everyone:

sudo mkdir /home/shared

Change owner of the directory, assume name of the user is alice:

sudo chown -R alice:alice /home/shared

Change access rights with read-only access:

sudo chmod -R 744 /home/shared

or with write access to everybody:

sudo chmod -R 766 /home/shared

or even make full-access directory including executable rights:

sudo chmod -R 777 /home/shared

Next everyone can add a bookmark for the directory /home/shared to Nautilus by pressing Ctrl+D. More about Nautilus bookmarks:
