Angry Edit / Create locked file, lubuntu


Hi folks, after much reading, I am close to giving up on this. I wish to create a blacklist config file to over ride the installed file for my sdr device. The system will not allow me to change anything. I am the owner and sole user on this lunbutu system.
Any help appreciated. Richard

Hi Richard,

Are you logged in as root or using the sudo command?

please post the output of
Code:
ls -l /full/path/to/file
we do not know what file or software or device you are talking about, but it's a fair bet it's a permission problem.
