Permissions on Wallpaper Folder

Hi Guy’s,
I need some help w/ permissions.
I have a folder of wallpapers in my doc’s that I would like to transfer to the Lubuntu default wallpaper folder: /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers.
I get stopped by permissions denied when I copy & paste,
Is there a work around? or how do I change permission on that folder?


I could be wrong but I think the best practice is not to change permissions for stuff that’s set to root.

I think what you can do is simply run the cp or mv command with sudo and that might work.

In your case, I guess the full command would look something like sudo cp /path/to/file /usr/share/lubuntu/wallpapers

I apologize in advance to the SUDO police for suggesting sudo as a workaround.

Thank you for your help.That worked.
After many hours of research and reading, I’ve learned that LINUX is a lot of command line noise.
I just don’t understand why LINUX users have to go around the “North and South Poles” to get to the equator. Just saying…

Anyways, Thanks again for your help.
