openSUSe10.2 Folder access issues


Alright, openSUSE is apparently very secure, maybe even to a fault. I need to access a file in the /usr/ directory /usr/local/share/mplayer/skins being the path. However, when I go to add files into it, as I need to, it says "You do not have permissions to write to this folder."

How do I get around this and access the folder freely? Its rather irritating. Usually if I get this it asks for a password, I give it and move on. But yeah, no such luck here.


its also the gnome installation

man chmod for help in setting permissions how you want
