Hey guys, so I was trying to test JavaHL library using the test file provided on their website. The test created a bunch of folders that doesn’t allow me to delete the files. When I looked in the properties, it says “you are not the owner so you cannot change these permissions”. Don’t know if you feel the same way as I did, but I AM THE OWNER for Christ sake.
Anyways, after doing a little research, I found that it’s saying that you don’t own the folder and it’s related to the root or something like that. This person provides a solution using
gksu nautiluswhich doesn’t work in my case. It may or may not work in yours so you might want to take a look.
Googling a little more, here’s what I did to delete the annoying folders:
sudo suin the terminal, which will make you act as a root, the super user.
- Delete the folder/directory along with the files and subfolders insides it with the command:
rm -r folder_name
This kind of work for my case. Hope it helps you too!! Cheers~
