User accounts can run tasks with root privs either via sudo or becoming root after logging in with the "su" command.

assuming the file is in your home folder and needs to be moved /lib ??? most likely /usr/lib

su -
( your root password when asked )
cd /to/where/the/file/is
( cd /home/your-user-name )
cp the-name-of-the-file /usr/lib


cp --help
mv --help

You might have to do some chown stuff too - exactly what are you trying to install/change?
