So is there any way to confer root privilages (at least for writing dirs and mounting discs) or at least stopping the error again.
Thankyou for your time
I didn't get your requirement well.
a. Read the 'man' for 'sudo'.
It takes the command as an argument and tries to execute as root user.
So "sudo root" is trying to execute the command "root" as a root user, which is wrong.
You should try like "sudo ls" etc.
Probably to change the permission you can try:
sudo chmod +x filename
