    Proplem with "zenmap"


    i have successfully installed nmap, and have experience with it using other OS' such as windows. i found that the linux version is much more reliable and powerful. but anyways. i wanted to give the GUI for it a try, so i downloaded zenmap and tried to install it and came up with the following error:

    "
    Code:
    root ~/Desktop/nmap-4/nmap-4.68  #   /root/Desktop/nmap-4/nmap-4.68/zenmap-4.68-1.spec
    bash: /root/Desktop/nmap-4/nmap-4.68/zenmap-4.68-1.spec: Permission denied"
    ...im using the root account (as you can see), so why am i getting a "permission denied" message? and how can i fix it?

    -much appreciated

    Maybe the file doesn't have write/execution rights.
    To give it the right permission, just do:

    Code:
    chmod +rwx path/to/desired/file
    I'm not sure, but I believe this may help.
