I’m working through the Command Line course and decided to try out this activity, editing .bash_profile on my own machine.
However, when I try to edit .bash_profile with nano in Terminal, I get Permission Denied and can’t save changes. I am running Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur and I know it has Z shell / .zsh . I have Anaconda installed to run Python.
Error appears at the point of using ^O to write out. "Error writing /Users/my_name/.bash_profile: Permission denied "
Should I be able to do this? I’m very new to Command Line so please be gentle!
