Saving score on ubuntu

• Feb 15, 2019 - 19:13

I am new to both MuseScore2 and to ubuntu version of Linux. I have created a score using MuseScore and am having trouble getting ubuntu to save the file. The following message shows up when I attempt to save:

Open Temp File
failed: Permission denied\

I suppose this is an operating system problem rather than an app problem, but I am desperate for some insight into why I cannot save the doggone file.



You can't open a .temp file in MuseScore. Rename it without the .temp and you shouldn't have a problem. FYI, I don't know anything about Ubantu.

Thanks to all.
Ownership of both the MuseScore directory and the Scores directory proved to be the problem. In changing ownership, not knowing any better, I used $USER instead of allen:allen, and changed to the parent directory each time, not knowing the syntax suggested for specifying the target. It seems to have worked, and God is back in his heaven.
Again, thanks to all.
