Unable to update groovymame from LXDE
« on: August 07, 2017, 04:11:20 am »
In Groovyarcade, using the LXDE frontend to update groovymame and move rom files, for some reason, wheever I try to replace /usr/local/binaries/groovymame file I get the message "permission denied". It does not allow me to change permissions to for that folder either. How can I easily do it? I'm not very skillful with linux so I do not know how to do it from a command line console...

Help, please!

Linux manages permissions depending on who the owner of the file is.  You can find out the owner and the current permissions by typing the below command in a terminal.

ls -l /path/to/file

You can use sudo command to temporarily give yourself root privileges to delete, replace, change owner, and/or change rights.

Thanks, indeed it worked but could not remove the file at first. I just had not noticed that you have to set, preferably prior to installation, a password for root. I case it someone might need ir in the future:

From LXDE desktop open an LXterminal window, for example, and introduce these commands (roughly, i'm recalling from memmory):

Su

#Introduce your password for root

Ls /usr/local/bin

Rm groovymame
