Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sorry, ll is an alias to "ls -l". I thought it was standard in Ubuntu but perhaps not. Anyway, the permissions on that directory look fine. If the file you are trying to save is already there and you are trying to overwrite it, then the permissions of that file will also need to allow you to write to it. Now, you have stated "documents" directory and "Documents" directory. There is a difference. Jay73's command should fix your problem, but it may need to be:
** (nautilus:6665): WARNING **: Unable to add monitor: Operation not supported
Nautilus-Share-Message: Called "net usershare info" but it failed: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error No such file or directory
Please ask your system administrator to enable user sharing.
Somehow I think I'm doing this wrong in the first place.
Not trying to be a smart a**, but Debian has aliases ( among them is ll ) in /etc/skel/.bashrc:
# some more ls aliases
#alias ll='ls -l'
#alias la='ls -A'
#alias l='ls -CF'
As you can see, initially they are commented out.
I'm familiar with what an alias is used for, so once it was stated that is what his command was, it all became clear. but like you said they are commented out by default in Debian and I just type those commands long form, so Im not used to seeing ll as a command.
