Thread: Cannot paste a license data file to a folder

    Default Cannot paste a license data file to a folder

    Hi,
    I am renewing a TI dsp license file. The original license file is located at Home/Robert/ti/license folder (curiously, I see the path is Home/ti/license at file manager). I would like to copy the new license file to this folder. Unfortunately the "paste into folder" is grey when I right click the license folder. The folder property shows that only the owner can write to this folder. I am new to SUSE, especially at command line input. Does the File manager support superuser mode?

    That license file is located at another hard drive partition, whose label is XKY. How can I copy at the command line? I try "cp XKYlicense.dat . ", it doesn't recognize it. Could you tell me how to access another hard drive partition?

    Thanks.

    Yes, but you will have to say what desktop you are using. Pleople can not help you if you
    withhold that information.

    By giving the path to that directory. Every mounted partition has a path. "XKY:" is not a Linux
    path.

    When functions are grayed out it often means you do not have rights to either copy the file in question or to post that file in the target folder or to over write an existing file. Check your file permissions for folders and files before you go any further. I have a script that might be helpful in this task you can find here:
