Ubuntu: permissioned denied /users



Question:

Trying to create a directory under /users as root but get permission denied. Any idea why?

Thx Dean

dean@dean-lnx:~$ sudo mkdir -p /users/testing  [sudo] password for dean:   mkdir: cannot create directory /users/testing: Permission denied  dean@dean-lnx:~$ ls -al /users  total 4  drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    0 Jun 28 00:51 .  drwxr-xr-x 27 root root 4096 Jun 28 00:51 ..  


Solution:1

Odd. Try running this instead:

sudo su  sudo mkdir -p /users/testing  

If you are trying to add an account, you can just open User Accounts and add an account from there.
