I have to set up a raspberry Pi with linux and it is getting me so FRUSTRATED! It is also not helping as I am in a confined location but the hardware that the Pi is connected to can not be moved.
I suppose if I knew what I was doing it would be Ok but I am learning again - the reasons for giving up with it before are coming back to me.
Some examples ( from memory as it was a few hours ago ) but not all the problems I have had.
Create a file and try to save it into the www folder - I can not open file, I get an error. What do you mean I just want to save the file. Consult a co worker and am told I have to do it by opening leafpad as an administrator.
Example 2: download a file to www but it is not there. Look around for it and its in the download folder even though I asked for it to be saved in the www folder. Check Google and I have to move it using terminal as the administrator as I can not drag and drop or copy and paste.
Example 3: Open the first file change it and try saving it but again I am not allowed to. Open leafpad as administrator; edit and save.
Decide to login as administrator but I do not know the password; I assume I have to set up a user. Co worker nearly has a heart attack when I tell him I want to login as administrator. Told I need to check what group I am in - I might be Pi - let that group access the www folder.
Gave up and went and did something else.
