sorry, this post is a little old.
I had the same problem and in windows XP the message was the same: i dont have permissions for accessing that directory, what i did was the following:
I give all permissions to the directory with "chmod" command in linux, for example, in my case, in the terminal:
chmod 777 /home/edier88
with that, you are giving all type of permissions to the directory you want:
chmod 777 "path of directory"
if you want to see what kind of permissions do you have in that directory, you can enter the following command in the directory that you are in the momment:
for example, if you are in "/etc" when you enter the "ls -lag" command you will see all the permissions that you have in all folders and files in "/etc".
I will give you some links where you can learn more about this:
