I am very new to Linux. Two days ago I installed Suse 9.2. Love it, but I'm having a big problem. I've done a search of the threads and have not found a solution.
When I'm in normal user mode I can not save any files or create any folders in my drives. I always get access denied as a response. They are NTSF format. When I'm in root it is not a problem. I would like to be able to save things I download. It wont even let me save to the Linux drive.
Thanks in advance for help. Could we keep responses simple. I have no idea how to do anything. Does anyone know of a good Linux book?
In Linux, as a nomral user you can generally only write to your home directory and /tmp (which is for temporary files). This is standard practice in *nix operating systems to make sure you can't hose the system as a normal user. If you did something in your home directory and are getting permissions denied, post the results of "ls -l <filename>", which tells you the permissions.
