Hi,

I am new guy to ubuntu.My problem is i am uanble to copy/paste any file from one folder to another folder.The same problem occurs when i insert an USB also.

If i enter this command in the terminal gksudo nautilus,i can do copy/paste either in usb or normal also.I dont know why i am unable to do copy/paste without using the command.Is there any way to do the copy/paste without using the command every time.When i use the command gksudo nautilus,my wallpaper also changes.

Note: Please,excuseme,if any spelling mistakes are there,and if this is the not thread for this type of quetions.

Waiting for the reply.

Just tell us forst ffrom which file you want to copy/move files from.
As a "regular" user you don't have permissions in every folder.

when i select any folder to copy,it will be copied,when i try to paste it in any other folder,the paste option will not be there..i tried to copy a folder called keucr from my Downloads folder to usr/src and to paste the folder there.but i am unable to do it.

When i am using USB also,two folders will open,one is USB0 and the other is New Volume,USB0 will open,if i want to copy any folder from the USB0,i cant do that.

you mean you tried to copy it in your usr/src ie the file system. obviously you cant do that
.you cant copy anything in your filesystem unless you are root user

Hi,

The Problem is solved,just i removed an application called "usbmount" from the software center..It is the one which is not allowing me to do copy/paste,everytime when i insert an usb,without typing gksudo nautilus in terminal,i am unable to do copy/paste things.

After removing usbmount,i can do it now.

Thank you for your time :-)

No,i am succesfull in copying the folders from my home folder to USB,few days back i am unable to do that, every time i have to open the terminal,and i have to give root permission,and i can do copy/paste things,which is a difficult one..
