put sudo in front of cp if oracle has sudo rights

sudo cp /root/Desktop

Open in new window

or use same command as root user (don't su - oracle first)
As the root user, do

cp ~oracle/Desktop/ /root/Desktop

Or have the root user pull the file to his/her desktop -- although this begs the question why a non-root account needs to add something to root.....
