This might not be an issue. It could just be that I cannot understand how perms on linux work.
I want to take a .desktop file I have made and put it in
/usr/share/applications. I cannot do so because every time I go to paste it says ‘permissions do not allow pasting in this directory’
I am trying to install a theme on libre office which isn’t available on LIbre’s extensions or themes(I guess for copyright issues since it’s designed to resemble word) and I’m getting permission issues there too. When I install it as an extension it shows to be installed but I can’t see it in icons. I tried the other method of copy pasting it to the directory for extensions and I get the same message - ‘permissions do not allow pasting in this directory’. When I went to remove the extension itself from Libre it displayed an error
The theme I was trying to install.
The error message I got when trying to remove it. Posting a screenshot because I can’t copy paste it -
A user here linked me two pages on permission commands and I couldn’t understand them. All I could understand was -
-users don’t have root access(is this the same as sudo?) all the time and I can’t simply paste to a folder which is set to root access.
-Applications also can’t access these folders which I guess is why the extension wasn’t installed properly?
-permissions are handled through different values? like read is 4, write is 2 and execute is 1 though I don’t know how to use this
