How do I get this file permission changed?

Postby G. Traynor on Sat Apr 28, 2007 8:59 am

How do I get full ownership for the following file?

usr/share/AbiSuite-2.4/dictionary

I need to extract an AbiWord dictionary to that folder and it says I don't have permission to do so.

Thanks

use sudo
you could extract the file with a sudo and that would put all the contents there.

cd /usr/share/AbiSuite-2.4/dictionary
sudo tar -xvf /path/filename.tar

or change the directory permissions and all subdirectories of AbiSuite.
(not a good security practice.)

sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/share/AbiSuite-2.4

then extract the to the dictionary directory.

:D
