Question FC6 Directory Creation?

Hey, I've noticed that in certain directories, I'm unable to create a sub-directory....does anyone know how to change this? is there some kind of button or setting somewhere that disallows me from creating directories under certain directories?

Odds are its because you don't have the proper privileges. Any directory in particular you can't create sub-directories in?

If you are experiencing the problem within your home folder, try running " chmod -R 755 * " as root. Also do "ls -l" and see if your user has ownership of all the folders. If not first run " chown -R user.user * " as root,before the chmod command.
Lemme know.
