Permission denied in modifying Move base params, how?

Hi Ubiquity Robotics, All,

I’m trying to modify Magni_nav/move base’s param files (costmaps, local and costmaps)…but it keeps coming up as permission denied…,

please advise what I need to do in order so that I can modify these files…,

If you’re modifying the installation in /etc then you’ll need sudo, those are linux system files and can only be modified by root.

thank you, @MoffKalast

Depends on installation. If move_base installed on a non Ubiquity distribution, the parameters might be installed in /opt/ROS or somewhere else with root permissions.
