"Access denied to /home/violentj/firefox-installer/install.ini"


Ok I installed Firefox successfully and now I want to delete the install directory for it but it won't let me, says I don't have access.

How do I delete this folder?

I am not sure what you want me to do. Do you want me to type -l /home/violentj/firefox-installer/install.ini into Konsole and if so is that a lower case L with the "-" sign?

That's a (best to copy and paste ;})
Code:
ls -l /home/violentj/firefox-installer/install.ini
in a terminal, yes.

It's a small L same as in the LS (again, small) right before it.

And you're supposed to type the lot, including the ls

From your other post, I assume you installed firefox as root. If that's the case, you need to be root to delete the folder since it was installed with root permissions.
