Hi, I tried that, the same error:

cp: cannot create regular file ‘/etc/vpnc/vpnuspnet.conf’: Permission denied

I have no idea why is not allowing me to do such a simple action...

2015-05-30 18:36:12 -0500 asked a question Can't move a VPN file to /etc/vpnc

Hi, I am on Fedora 21, and I need to use a VPN application from my University. I already got it, extracted and now I need just copy the file that is on my /Downloads/ to /etc/vpnc/. Every time that I try to do this, on Terminal, I get this:

cp: missing destination file operand after ‘vpnuspnet.conf.etc.vpnc/’

I tried as well to just open the folders and move the file to the needed directory, and it says that: "Error opening file '/etc/vpnc/vpnuspnet.conf': Permission denied"

On the /etc/ folder, I click on "properties" and it says: "You are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions"

Gosh! Of course I am the owner. I am logged as administrator, with my own password.

Why such a simple thing can turn on that nightmare? I leave the 'horrorland' from Redmond to be FREE and I really like Fedora 21 on my X220. It works great, but a thing that I can do in less than 5 minutes on Mac OS or even on the terrible Redmond's OS, I am stucked here on F21. I can't get this. I am a new user of Fedora's, and a very proud one, did everything on my own after watch and read tutorials.

Please, any hint or help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, it really worked and fixed the SE-Linux security issue that was happening every time Chrome launched.

Thanks for your feedback. Meanwhile, I got it, I discovered that Supercollider and other applications that work with Fedora 21 are available thru CCRMA's repositoires for F21:

SuperCollider and Pd are working on my X220, no bugs, no crashes. Remember that I have to get first Qjackctl.

Hi there, I am a new user and just installed Fedora 21's on my X220. Everything is really amazing, but I am having a hard time to install Supercollider and Pd. I came from Mac, more than 20 years using OSX and Classic, and had just a few months of experience on Lubuntu. I really think that Fedora is superior on all matches, and I googled about how to install some applications on it. I see CCRMA repositories, and I tried to "sudo yum install pd-extended" on Terminal, but nothing really happened. Is there a way to install theses applications (among others musical and sound packages) on Fedora 21? Thanks for any hint and feedback.
