Thank you cncbasher for pointing out what my problem could be.
I have a mini motherboard somewhere with ps2 plugs. All I got to do is find it and try it.
Thanks, Fritz.

Hi cncbasher,
Could you please tell me how to do the following in simple terms for a simple mind.

" sudo copy the previously downloaded extracted file operator_login_pp make a copy and rename
operator_login and overwrite the original,
( a copy of the original is included ).
and now make sure the properties of the file are correct.
both the owner (1001) & group (1002) so."
Thanks, Fritz.

cncbasher was stating this:

copy the file "operator_login_pp" and overwrite the original located in the pathpilot. You will have to use the sudo command in conjunction with copy to do this. (gives you super-user rights, aka admin) Google the command if unfamiliar with it.

Check the properties of the file by right-clicking on it. Make sure you have access as the owner and group.

You are trying something fairly advance so therefore a certain level of experience is assumed.

However your caustic attitude will prevent others from trying to help.
It's you - not me. If you want help then try to be polite when responding.
A simple search of "sudo copy command" or anything similar would have given you the information for this basic task.

You wont really get anywhere talking like this.

cp is the copy command.
sudo is the equivalent of root, so if you are a regular user you cant copy files that you dont own to a place that you dont have access to. so if you use sudo before the command it will ask you for root password so you can copy to and from a place you dont have access to as a regular user. re:

sudo cp path/filename(this is from) path/filename( this is where you want the file to end up)

sudo cp /usr/local/house/dog.txt /usr/local/src/dog.txt
It will ask you for a password, put in the root password and it will copy it there. If the file exists it will ask you if you want to overwrite it.

This is basic linux stuff, if you dont know this then you should be reading up on linux. Its normal you dont understand it, but getting frustrated and lashing out to people that are trying to help will not get you anywhere.

Just added "cp" after sudo as it was missing.
