I need to copy a THEME from my HOME folder to the /usr/share/themes folder. When I try to drag the theme, which is inside a folder, from the HOME folder to the THEMES folder I get the following error:

Error while moving items to "/usr/share/themes". You do not have permission to write to this folder".

I went to console and did "su" then my password and I am still denied access to writing to this folder. How do I get permission to copy my new theme in there?????? bob58 :cry:

The directory /usr/share/themes is owned by user root. So you need to do:
Code:
su    (then enter the ROOT password, possibly blagblag)
cp -a /home/bob/mynewtheme /usr/share/themes/


That should do it. You need to change "bob" to your username and "mynewtheme" to the name of your theme folder.

Also note, you don't have to copy the theme to that folder to use it if only one user is going to use it. You only need to copy it to /usr/share/themes if more than one user on the system is going to use the theme.
