    If you want to modify things in system directories use sudo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

    But read the previous replies. Why do you want to create an etc directory in your var directory? Only because you remember there used to be one? You don't need one and if there was one on a previous installation it was an error. It's best to not change anything outside your home directory, unless you know what you're doing. Making an /var/etc directory because you remember there used to be one on 11.04 is not reason enough. Systems change and there could be errors in your previous installation.

    The only problem there was, was that your 11.04 had a directory it shouldn't have had.

    Well, if you're absolutely sure you want that directory then just create it with...
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /var/etc
