The only reason I used sudo is because I was refused the program due to lack
I just tried sudo, like I would if using sudo Dolphin to change permissions.
It did not work the first two times. It said Owner had read/write however it
remained root root down below in the box. The third time it worked and
permission was changed, and I could use the application. What would you have
tried if you wanted to download pictures and were refused due to a permission
I have never come across the problem before either, and I have a fresh install
of Jaunty with my partitions finally properly mounted, my system backed up
properly, and just basic daily applications installed.
My neighbor was just burglarized and did not have a camera to record the
damage. He asked if I would take pictures and make a cd for him. I did, but
did not yet have digikam installed. This is the first time I have had trouble
installing digikam. Nonetheless, it is the first time I have had a 64 bit
system. I never really know if new problems are due to the 64 bit
applications, but that is what is different for me. Oh, I also have all
partitions with ext4 file systems for the first time. FYI, I transferred 130gb
of data into my backup in 31 minutes. It was incredible.
I believe I will have less problems now. For the first time, I have all my
partitions mounted in /home/steven. It is great, I can open dolphin in split
screen and move every piece of saved data from the one open application.
Additionally, no data is ever really in any jeopardy due to crash of
application, only drive failure, and I have my data saved on two new drives.
