    Question File Managment Problem "Access Denied"

    Ok I Created a new Administrator user a while back and has been working well. but a problem has appeared recently. when i try to edit files in my home directory like moving files to the trash bin i get this error - "Access Denied to /home/iain/.local/share/Trash/files/My Files". There is a similar error while copying and pasting.

    I can edit the files in root but i would rather be able to do in in the actual users profile.

    Any Information or solution to this problem would be much appreciated.

    all the best,

    FurryTurtle

    try to append sudo to commands that would usually run as root. Sudo basically allows you to run commands as another user, in this case the su or super user ie root. You have to make sure the user account that you made exists in "/etc/sudoers". It will ask you for the root password every time you use sudo but usually if you do not close out the terminal u only have to type the password once per terminal. You can find info here SUDO or just type "man sudo" in a terminal.
