  • Hey Sam thanks for the quick reply but that's what brings the "permission denied" error. After that I tried to use sudo but it refused. – mojo706 Nov 4 '12 at 17:57
  • Ok Sam thanks your answer was actually correct! I restarted the Terminal and it worked. Thanks again. – mojo706 Nov 4 '12 at 17:59
