I am new user of Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu version 12.10 in virtual box.
I downloaded a file called pcre in to
I created a folder in pcre in home folder and moved the pcre file from download folder to pcre folder
I then copied the folder
/usr/local/src/snort/snorttmp using the command
cp -a /home/dinesh/pcre /usr/local/src/snort/snorttmp
When I am trying to access snorttmp folder, a message is displayed
" The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "snorttmp".
Before copying pcre file into the snorttmp, I had access to snorttmp and was able to view the files present in snorttmp folder.
I then tried to see my files through the terminal
root@dinesh-VirtualBox: /usr/local/src/snort/snorttmp# ls -l -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5189146 Jan 24 00:18 2787 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 19659 Jan 28 16:29 index.html drwxrwxr-x 2 dinesh dinesh 4096 Jan 28 20:18 pcre drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Jan 1 00:08 snort-18.104.22.168 drwxrwxr-x 6 dinesh dinesh 4096 Jan 28 20:20 SnortRules drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 28 16:18 snorttmp
I find few of the files are marked in blue while the other files are displayed in white.
The files that were displayed in blue when I did ls -l are
2787 and index.html are displayed in white.
Kindly let me know what should be done to get permission to view my files.
