I don't need help anymore, I've manged to solve the problem, so I don't need help answering the question. I forgot the sudo command (facepalm) it was a long day and it's been a while working with Qubes. I'll leave this post up maybe it is useful for someone else.
Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
