GREAT! I'm glad you got it! One down and a few to go, I guess. This may sound stupid to many long-time UNIX/LINIX people, but moving around files from the command line, as efficient as it is, can sometimes be a little hard without SEEING what you are doing.

So...for Windows-damaged minds like mine, I will LOG IN AS ROOT in a graphical environment and move around my files permissions problems now writing ANYWHERE (but of course, be careful), then, once I have things in place, I'll go back to my account and do the installs and linking and whatever needs to be done. Many times if you are moving a file in command, you must use the recursive option and sometimes force also. This can be dangerous if you are not sure what you are doing....especially if removing files and directories with the rm command.

So....even it it's inefficient, and takes a little longer, just logging in as ROOT and doing it graphically can be a big help for the newer ones who are having trouble with permissions.

Also don't forget that you can change permissions on files too either with chmod command or a graphical right-click and properties box
