The folder you are saving to you need to change the permissions. By default (I think) Linux/Unix will set the premissions to some global setting.
ONE way around this is when you log in, before you start startx, navigate to the folder that is just above where you want to save it to.
Run (without quotes) "ls -lrta"
You should see the folder listed and it MAY read something like
You need a "w" and if you want to execute you need an "x" replacing the "-"
To do this (this is NOT the best method but look up the command):-
chmod 777 (foldername_you_want_to_change)
This should do the trick

My guess is that I am missing some nugget of fundamental knowledge on the whole Linux Permissions 'thing', which I am sure is great for those in the know but is a little confusing for those of us who have had out minds corrupted by many years of Bill G's products
