I'm making my way through the tutorial and have run into an issue when trying to do the exercise on saving a file:
Saving file /~TUTORIAL... basic-save-buffer-2: Directory / write-protected Auto-saving... Auto-saving ~TUTORIAL: Opening output file: Permission denied, /#~TUTORIAL#
The machine is mine, and so I have access everywhere, I think, and believe that I'm in my user directory to begin with.
Any ideas? Do I have to run the command as root?
