2013-02-07 10:34:22 -0500 marked best answer Permissions for copying files

By default, the /usr/share/themes/ directory can only be written to by root. Therefore to copy the a new theme into that directory, you can run the following command in the terminal:

su -c "cp -r /home/username/theme-folder/ /usr/share/themes/"

This will require the root password for your machine.

However, if you have sudo set up for your user, you can also achieve this by running the following command:

sudo cp -r /home/username/theme-folder/ /usr/share/themes/

The sudo way will require you to enter in your user password.

I am also new and would also like to know how to get around this. When installing software via web ie, skype, chrome, dropbox, etc. It will not allow me to download because of this error. An explained solution would be appreciated. Thanks
