    chmod: changing permissions of ‘bashrc’: Operation not permitted


    ahmar@LAPTOP-UEOBP851:/usr/lib/openfoam/openfoam2212/etc$ chmod 777 bashrc

    bashrc file is not executable file. why do you wanna change its permission I didnt understand.

    Anyway, If you wanna execute it you should simple source it as I explained in the lectures

    source ~/.bashrc


    . ~/.bashrc

    and if you wanna add something you should open it with a text editor.

    nano ~/.bashrc


    nano ~/.bashrc

    if you wanna change this file permission, try below:

    sudo nano .bashrc

    chmod 777 .bashrc

    I hope it will work for you.
