View Full Version : [ubuntu] folder creation permissions denied

January 11th, 2011, 08:47 PM
I'm trying to create a folder using the archive manager to install Resin (web server) in the usr/local folder but I get the error message 'error creating directory: Permission denied.'

Is this the easiest way to install an app--by using the Archive Manager--and if so how do I establish the correct permissions.

Extract the archive to our desktop

Press Alt-F2


gksudo nautilus

Then your password.

Then drag it into /usr/local
