have you located the files you have ripped????

you seem to be in a panic

calm down

type
locate .wav
or
locate .ogg
or
locate.mpg
or locate .mp3

or what ever you saved

this will tell you where they are

then you move them to a file that you do know

Hey,,Everything worked very cool .
BUT,,
It saves everything in the root user .
Because I can't start grip except in root mode
When I start grip it must be root,,
So I get in root and then I type grip, then I get in ..
Now the problem is starting grip from the normal user .
How to do it if you k'now please ?

!

chmod perm filename
(=change mode) Change the file access permission for the files you own (unless you are root in which case you can change any file). You can make a file accessible in three modes: read (r), write (w), execute (x) to three classes of users: owner (u), members of the group which owns the file (g), others on the system (o). Check the current access permissions using:
Got this from here

bookmark it

at the terminal
type
locate grip
cd <whatever-directory-it-is-in>
chmod 777 grip

or
chown 777 grip

here is the rest of the page on the subject

chmod perm filename
(=change mode) Change the file access permission for the files you own (unless you are root in which case you can change any file). You can make a file accessible in three modes: read (r), write (w), execute (x) to three classes of users: owner (u), members of the group which owns the file (g), others on the system (o). Check the current access permissions using:
ls -l filename
If the file is accessible to all users in all modes it will show:
rwxrwxrwx
The first triplet shows the file permission for the owner of the file, the second for the group that owns the file, and the third for others ("the rest of the world"). A "no" permission is shown as "-".
When setting permissions, these symbols are used: "u"(=user or owner of the file), "g"(=group that owns the file), "o"(=others), "a" (=all, i.e., owner, group and others), "="(=set the permission to), "+"(=add the permission), "-"(=take away the permission), "r"(=permission to read the file), "w"=(write permission, meanning the permission to modify the file), "x"(=permission to execute the file).

For example, this command will add the permission to read the file junk to all (=user+group+others):
chmod a+r junk
This command will remove the permission to execute the file junk from others:
chmod o-x junk

Also try here for more info.
You can set the default file permissions for the new files that you create using the command umask (see man umask).

chown new_ownername filename
chgrp new_groupname filename
Change the file owner and group. You should use these two commands after you copy a file for use by somebody else. Only the owner of a file can delete it.

lsattr files
List attributes for the file(s). Not very often used because the most interesting attributes are still not implemented. The attributes can be changed using the chattr command. The attributes are: A (=don't update atime when the file is modified), S (=synchronous updates), a (=append only possible to this file), c (=file compressed on the kernel level, not implemented yet), i (=immutable file), d (=no dump), s (=secure deletion), and u (undeletable, not implemented yet). An interesting usage may be to make a file undeletable even by root (until s/he clears the attribute).

sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now
(as a regular user, I will be prompted for my user password) Run the command "shutdown" (or another command which you have been given permission to run by your system administrator). With sudo, the administrator can give selected users the rights to run selected commands, without handing out the root password. The file /etc/sudoers must be configured to contain something like:
my_login_name my_host_computer_name = /sbin/shutdown

pwck
grpck
(as root, two commands). Verify the integrity of the password and group files.

pwconv
grpconv
(as root) Unlikely you need these commands. They convert old-style password and group files to create the more-secure "shadow" files.
