I'm trying to install a peice of software via the terminal but i'm hitting a snag which is restricting me. It seems i am being denied to do things on my own system and i cannot understand why when i have (i think) changed permissions for myself so i can perform simple command line instructions. The program is called "Throttled", its folder is called "throttled-source" and its inside this folder on my system: /Users/johnjkmorris/Desktop/To\ Save/Downloaded/throttled-source One i am inside that folder (dragging the folder to the terminal) i then type "make" as per the instructions in the read me file. As explained here:"Configuring and installing throttled - 1. cd to the directory containing throttled in the terminal 2. type "make" 3. type "sudo make install" But whenever i type "make" i get "Permission denied", i cannot understand why and that is the problem, i'm not asking for help on the installation of the program i merely want permission to install it. I have tried looking in my "Mac OS X The Missing Manual" manuals index for admin settings and privledges and made some changes, i gave myself Read & Write access but i still get this permission denied feedback.
