Okay so I wanted to do a simple sound change to my laptop, nothing wrong with ubuntu's sounds, so I decided to try and use the Zelda sounds for everything.

I saved the file and extracted it to the desktop.
I went to sounds, usr>share>sounds, and when I tried to drag the folder over I get the message,
"There was an error moving the folder to /usr/share/sounds."
"Error moving file: Permission denied"

I hate being denied like most guys but this I don't want to slide.
I'm the only person on this laptop so why can't I move/copy the folder to sounds?
Also is there another way to install it through the terminal, Applications>Accessories>Terminal?

You have to use the move command (in terminal)

sudo mv /path/to/folder /path/to/destination folder
