    [SOLVED] help with syntax for installing to libs firmware

    Hi All
    please help
    I am trying to copy a file I downloaded to my desktop called firmware_v3.tgz to /lib/firmware - I cannot drag it into the folder as I dont have the right permission(root) - what is the terminal command to do this. Please could someone put the correct command in a post so I can copy and paste it into the terminal to get it to copy - also an explanation on how to get sudo permissis would be great to drag files if it is possible.

    you can do:
    Code:
    sudo mv ~/Desktop/firmware_v3.tgz /lib/firmware/firmware_v3.tgz
    and then give your password.

    or if you prefer with drag-n-drop, then
    press:
    Code:
    Alt+F2
    and in the new window type:
    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    Give the password, and now you can drag and drop your files wherever you like, using the "root nautilus"...
