Most likely you need "root" privileges to change anything under "/usr".
If you trust the code, try running it again as "root" (also known as
"super-user"). Only do that if you're certain that the code is clean
(i.e. no viruses, trojans, spyware and/or worms)!
(Sorry, I don't know anything about Linspire, or else I would guide you
step by step on how to do that!. In general, try "sudo" with your own
password, or "su" with root's password.)
