In order to install programs you will need to be have root privilages. There are a couple ways you can do this. You can open up a root terminal in Konsole, or you can type the command su to gain root privilages. That should alow you to read and write to anywhere on your drive.

it could also be that your hard drive partition is full ...

what is the output of the command:

df -h

from the command line.
