I would like to make my User Library folder permanently visible since it has much useful information that I consult.  Many sources have recommended you insert     chflags nohidden ~/Library/     into a Terminal window to make this change.  I was able to do this successfull in Lion.


However, in Mountain Lion, Terminal responds with Permission Denied when I do this.  Does anyone know what I need to do to make the command work?
