Hello my name is Victor. Im trying to figure out how to gain access to a file. Every time I try to delete it, it prompts me with a access denied pop-up, same thing when I try to change its directory. I have no current codes or any other parameters to deny access to any file.
The file is a java program file. I now that its not an RMP file because when I go to the terminal and enter “rpm -qa” it dose not appear on the list. So its a self-extracting file. Therefor the manufacturer recommends to just delete the file right there but again access denied same with changing its directory.
are you logged in as root?
You must have root privileges to delete/edit/create file/folder outside your /home/<user_id> folder.
Execute su command to gain root privileges.
cd <location of file>
Thanks a lot I knew I could do that forsome reason I didnt think!
