/usr/X11R6/bin/afterstep is not a directory (unless you created it).  It's
a file.

If you want to know about permissions, read "man chmod" and _The Linux
Installation and Getting Started Guide_, available from your favourite
mirror of the Linux Documentation Project.  If you don't know whow to find
that, consult your favourite online searche engine.

              Go to, or issue
'finger -l' to find the AfterStep FAQ file.
