    What is the full path of the file you are trying to save? Do you have write permission in the folder, and is there any existing file with the same name?

    Can you open a terminal and check the permissions? The first will list the contents of Desktop and the second will list the permissions on the directory itself:

    Code:
    whoami
    ls -l /home/samlabs821/Desktop/
    ls -ld /home/samlabs821/Desktop/
    Also check /home/samlabs821 because the permissions are inherited from the parent.

    drwxr-xr-x 45 samlabs821 samlabs821 4096 2010-05-15 02:48 /home/samlabs821/

    User samlabs821 can read, write and execute files in /home/samlabs821, as expected, but /home/samlabs821/Desktop does not exist. You appear to have deleted your Desktop folder.
