I'm sure it's probably something obvious that i've ovelooked but here goes:
I installed suse 9.3 on my laptop a few days ago, I must say that i absolutely love it. Look slike I'll be saying goodbye to windows altogether. But, I've hit on a problem:
I can't play .wmv files or various others I'm sure. I had a look around online and found a link to the essential codec pack.
I downloaded it, but when I tried to extract it to /usr/lib/win32 I got an error message saying that I don't have write permision. The general advice seemed to be to log in as root, but when i do that all i get is yast and i can't seem to access the desktop at all. I can't see an option which fits either.
So, what am i missing? Or how do i give myself the right (write) permissions?
Thanks in advance
