Ubuntu 12.04: Ipython Permission Denied

I am trying to install Sage on Ubuntu 12.04. I am still learning Linux and am a total newbie when it comes to Sage.

I grabbed the tar off one of the mirror sites and extracted it with no problems. The issue is when I try to execute sage. It says " cp: cannot stat `/home/username/.sage/ipython': Permission Denied ". That is not where I extracted to, and as far as I know, that directory doesn't exist. Is this some hidden directory? Is some file pointing it somewhere no files/directory exists? Do I have to change permissions on something pertaining to Ipython? I'm not quite sure what the problem is exactly. Any help is appreciated.
