Delete directory

Hello, I wanted to remove a dictionary, with "rm -r" but it says no permission. what can I do to remove it?

If there is a lack of permissions, it does immediately raise concerns about a protected directory.
Mind if I ask which directory you are trying to remove?

Please always remember to specify a path carefully when using rm -rf since that command all by itself will clean your entire drive of all data.

Using sudo to elevate permissions will get the desired result:

sudo rm -r /path/to/file
