ln: creating symbolic link `libGLU.so.1.3' to `/usr/lib/libGLU.so.1': Permission deni


Hi,

I recently dualled booted my computer with kubuntu so I am not that familiar with all the commands. I need to create a link in usr/X116R/lib to a folder called usr/lib/libGLU.so.1.3.070001 so I tried the following:

:/usr/X11R6/lib$ ln -s /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 libGLU.so.1.3

But it returned the following:
ln: creating symbolic link `libGLU.so.1.3.07001' to `/usr/lib/libGLU.so.1.3.07001': Permission denied

Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Thanks,
Natalie

You need admin privileges to write to that directory, i.e. you need to run:

$ sudo <command creating link>

and enter the password when prompted.
