    Hello everybody, I am using freespire the problem is i want to change the permission through command line and it is only possible if you r a root.

    enter the password of normal user you created while installation. FreeSpire is Debian based. use 'sudo' for getting root preveligies.

    I had the same problem, and I think I went into user manager (from Launch) and unchecked the enable root user and gave root a password. Something like that anyway.
    Hope it helps some.
