Issue #1445 invalid

Permission denied

Anonymous created an issue

I have no idea what I'm doing. First look at Sphinx. Novice with Linux as well. I followed the instructions to 'make latexpdf'

This is a copy of the lof file.

Further below is the terminal output.

    I think you executed sudo make install once then the environment.pickle and some other files under /home/willem/_build/ were created by root authority.

    Please remove _build directory once, so that you can make html properly.

    Sorry for late response. Had to register first (and find this back)

    Have deleted a _build, which was initially created using [...].

    'make html' now returned this, which seems good to me.

    $ make html sphinx-build -b html -d _build/doctrees . _build/html Running Sphinx v1.2.2 loading pickled environment... done building [html]: targets for 0 source files that are out of date updating environment: 0 added, 0 changed, 1 removed looking for now-outdated files... none found no targets are out of date.

    Build finished. The HTML pages are in _build/html.
