How to change Kylix directory permissions for all users when installed as root.

Abstract: If you are getting a "can't load package" error when running Kylix it may be a permissions problem.


How do I change the directory permissions for Kylix so all users can run it?


Even if you installed into the /usr directory you may need to change the permissions for that directory so other users can run Kylix. To do this open a terminal window. If you are not currently logged in as root you can temporarily log in as root within the terminal window by entering su and then entering your password. Then, as root, enter the following:
  cd /usr
  chmod -R 755 kylix/

As an alternative to using chmod you may be able to change directory permisions from within a graphical directory browser on your machine, by right clicking on the kylix directory.
