    File Permission denied, Debian 9

    Hey guys, just an update Since @JasKinasis helped me solve my original problem, and I went and got a desktop environment and I started loving Stretch (Debian 9). I decided that I should go whole hog and get the full setup, which I've done and I also did myself a favour and downloaded a manual...

    @Condobloke Yeah I got there with JasKinasis's help, now I'm just getting it setup the way I like things. So far I'm glad I made the switch, it works nice and fast on this crappy PC (which was slow under win10). Can't wait to get some programs installed (Linux compatible obviously) and then I...

    @JasKinasis Hey mate, I followed your advice and it worked no problem, thank you. But then, I decided that since I have data (for now), to go and install a desktop environment and well well well, I now have a functioning and working computer system that I'm very happy with. :D I'm so glad I...

    Yep, Euabalong to be precise mate. Lived there when I was a kid and went to Lake Cargelligo Primary. When I saw your username I immediately thought "I wonder if he's from around Condo, or does he live in a Condo?" (lol).

    Thanks JasKinasis, but I can't even do that? All I get is: -bash: sudo: command not found So my next question is, how do I check if I'm a root user? I should be as there was only one user account created. Or, how do I switch to root user account? And thank you for responding so quickly mate...

    I recently installed core package of Debian 9 via USB (I had to use smaller ISO image due to data limit being reached on Internet). It installed fine and works just like I was expecting, identified my hardware and all that and no problems in that regard. However, I'm having trouble with file...
