I'm trying to copy and also move files from folder to folder in the file browser. I continue to receive the I don't have permission to do that message. I can do it in terminal when I use the sudo -s command, but I want to do it in the regular file browser user interface so I can just drag and drop. Also, the user manager says the role root isn't available to me, so why do I still not have permission? This is my personal computer and I never want to see a permission problem again. How do I fix this? Thanks J
My advice to you is to learn to obey the permissions. You could log on your computer as root all day but that is always a bad idea. Permissions are put in-place for a purpose. Learn to use the proper command-line methods to manipulate your data.
