    Gaming FRUSTRATION - Cedega - [Errno 13] Permission denied

    "An error was encountered while creating the folder: [Errno 13] Permission denied"

    Going to need more info than that, does it happen while running it, installing it?

    If installing where are you installing it to.

    We have nothing to go on to help you right now.

    I got the exact same problem when I wanted to install WarCraft_III on Debian unstable.
    Issuing the following command should solve it:
    $ chmod 777 /home/<username>/.cedega -R

    It's the attributes of the file, so who can read, write and execute it.

    777 meaning everyone basically.
