i want to clear space on my computer in order to download drivers for my internet, so i tried moving files to a different location, unfortunately i dont have permission to do this, how do i change this, i should point out that i am not logged in, i think im a guest or something because if i log in i can not gain access to the internet to download the drivers that i need, so im using the cd and using the try ubunt feature to try achieve downloading the drivers. this is very frustrating for me as im new and have not got a clue how to do this
If you use the Try Ubuntu feature and fire up Terminal, type in the following command:
This will log you in as super user without typing a password. You should see the word root before the prompt. Then you can change directory and you will have permission.
