[SOLVED] Permission denied when building?

  • Hello, I have tried to build wpa_gui, a Qt GUI for wpa_supplicant. Whenever I build I encounter an error like this:

    09:52:23: Running steps for project wpa_gui...
    09:52:23: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    09:52:23: Starting: "/usr/bin/make"
    ../wpa_gui-qt4/wpagui.ui -o .ui/ui_wpagui.h
    make: execvp: ../wpa_gui-qt4/wpagui.ui: Permission denied
    make: *** [.ui/ui_wpagui.h] Error 127
    09:52:23: The process "/usr/bin/make" exited with code 2.
    Error while building/deploying project wpa_gui (kit: Qt 4.8.5 (System))
    When executing step "Make"
    09:52:23: Elapsed time: 00:00.

    Can anyone please help me understand what's going on? Thanks

    Does the user with which you have logged in or trying to build that application have write permissions of wpa_gui-qt4 directory ?

  • Hello p3co,

    I have changed the permissions for the directory recursively via chmod -R, and I can now build the project (though with some errors). Thanks for your suggestion.
