    No permission to move files.

    Im trying to move some files from my desktop to /usr/share/ProjectM
    Project M is a visualization program, and Im trying to move some presets I downloaded there.

    The error I get is
    Code:
    There was an error moving the file into /usr/share/projectM/presets.
    Error moving file: Permission denied
    I am logged in as administrator, why can't I move these files?

    Hi

    Press Alt F2 and type

    gksudo nautilus

    to open nautilus as root. Close as soon as you have finished moving the files.
