Thread: Why can i paste my files?

    Default Why can i paste my files?

    Hello,


    I was wondering, why cannot i paste my files after a simple ctrl+C? The destination folders menu has paste disabled?

    This is despite the fact that i can do so using cmd line ???


    Any reasons will be helpful, as its more timeconsuming using cmd line.

    I t would be better if you tell us where from and to. Describe: Eg; I can't copy from my SUSE /home to my NTFS storage partition.

    Ok, why a simply copy is not pasting it when directories are:

    source: /home/abc/latex/src
    destination: /home/abc/latex/doc

    Copy and paste should work, assuming this /home/abc
    is owned by you
    ie; you are logged in to /abc

    right click paste with the mouse? Is that what you are doing? or Ctrl-v?

    Right click /abc
    what are the permissions and who is owner?

    are you talking about copying files to another location?
    WOW, i just tried it, i didn't even know it was possible to copy and
    paste _files_!

    well, if you can't get the answer which makes it work for you, do you
    know now to swipe the files to move/copy and pick'em up with the mouse
    and drag them over and drop them in their new place?? and THEN a
    pop-up will ask if you want to copy, move or link the files to the new
    spot..

    ok, maybe you can't paste (OR drag and drop) your files in the new
    place because you don't have write permission there..

    hmmmm, when you do it at the command line are you doing it as root, or
    as yourself??
