Newbie needs to delete a file:

Delete the GPE Calendar file : /home/user/.gpe/calendar

I think I need Xterm?

I did that and typed "sudo gainroot" --- am I on the right lines?

This appeared to take me to the /home/user/ directory but when I typed /home/user/.gpe/ it says "access denied".

I'm a stuck newbie who's a bit lost now.

to change directory:

Code:
cd /home/user/.gpe
to delete a file

Code:
rm /home/user/.gpe/calendar
You probably don't need to be root to delete the above file... access root sparingly and with care.

Thanks Millhouse worked a treat, I should have guess it was CD just like the old dos commands I used to use.

well not all... tried "dir" which did not work....

Usually, when I see someone who's attempting a recursive directory deletion, and is stymied by the fact that it's permission denied, that person is attempting to delete something they shouldn't.

Yes, rm -Rf as root will accomplish your task, but even money is saying that you won't be happy with the result.
