gedit won't save; advanced level?
Hello - I admit to being new to Linux. I'm not sure if this problem should be re-routed to a more advanced level, though.
I downloaded Oracle Linux ver. 7 on my server with Server settings (and a Gnome GUI). After running through the terminal basics, I tried opening gedit to test out its capabilities. It wouldn't let me save to folder; it just grayed out and I had to quit the application.
I modified gedit to -rwxrwxrwx (chmod) and took ownership of the file (chown) under my user profile and group. When that didn't work, I re-logged in as root and modified gedit back to root ownership and group, and it still won't save changes to any file location.
One more thing: gksudo didn't work, either...
