How can I save a file in /usr/local/lib/cnet? I'm trying to save a GIF image in the CNET resource folder to use for a simulation.

It says permission denied, and when I try to chmod the folder it gives me the error "not permitted".

Any ideas?

Seems like you need more rights to achieve this.

To be able to chmod, try becoming root before doing the call:

sudo chmod <YOUR_CHMOD> /usr/local/lib/cnet
