saving config.txt on raspian

Thu Sep 24, 2015 11:42 am

Hello all, I am using Raspian that comes with Noobs.
I want the monitor full screen, read the instructions, unquoted the lines required and tried to save. The save changes to 'config.txt'? appears, I press yes. I select the config.txt from the list and press save. I get the message that 'config.txt' already exists Overwrite?. I select yes then the error message pops up and says, Can't open file to write. How do I save changes to this file please?

NOOBS has its own config editor:

Edit Config: Opens a text editor allowing the cmdline and config for the selected installed OS to be edited.

Up until now I hadn't done that. Seems like a NOOB has a lot to learn. Thank you for the advice.
Also, how do I load "LINARO" to a spare SD card? Have tried it many ways with no joy..... :? Unpacked it to the SD card, no joy in getting it to boot.
Maybe someone can point me to a "Linux for totally dumb Noobs" book or similar. :D
