    Access denied


    I am trying to 'make install' for my scim. But getting error message saying 'access denied /usr/lib/libs' libs is not existing in lib. I tried to change user configuration, but it doesn't help. How can I have access to these folders?

    before you do the make install you must become root so
    Code:
    su -
    then enter the root password and you will be root then
    Code:
    make install
