This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to follow the installation instruction for a piece of software:
cp SOFTWARE-yyyymmdd.linux.tar.gz /usr/local/. cd /usr/local gunzip -c SOFTWARE-yyyymmdd.linux.tar.gz > SOFTWARE-yyyymmdd.linux.tar
But when I try to do that, I get the following error:
-bash: SOFTWARE-yyyymmdd.linux.tar: Permission denied
What could be the problem here?
