Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ no permission to save file

Posted by: kopiq May 19 2008, 03:17 PM

hi first thanks for this nice site it is very helpfull!. my problem is i use ubuntu, i downloaded rainlendar which works fine, but when i download a style for it i cannot save it to /usr/share/rainlendar2/skins/
it says the dir does not have permission to alter or change the dir contents. i tried alt+f2 then gksudo but not sure how to log in or change anything. when i right click on the directory it says only owner and modify.
im pretty sure i need to log in as root for this but im not sure how besides in terminal and even then i dont know commands to move files from desktop to that specified dir.

thanks for any help!
