I'm logged in as root and want to run Add/Remove Software (Package Installer) but get the message telling me
Code: Running graphical applications as a privileged user should be avoided for security reasons. Package management applications are security sensitive and therefore this application will now close.
How must I install applications? Surely the world is getting paranoid with all this hackers and viruses, because with every new version O/S, the security features gets more and more; up to the point that you can't fricken do and play around with your pc as you would.

What I mast do for fix this error?
P.S. I have Fedora 12 x86_64 on my notebook ASUS M51Sn.
I just installed a .deb package using the Package Installer in Ubuntu. After closing the dialog that told me it finished installing, the "Package Installer" window was left grayed out and impossible to close (the 'x' button does nothing). How can I terminate this program? Why does Ubuntu not have a way to end processes that don't respond to input?
It does not seem to be listed in the system monitor.
I've been having issues with the omega.cert on Pidgin and tried to upgrade to 2.7.7 today. I clicked on the link from the Pidgin site to download the ppa package "pidgin-ppa_0.0.3_all.deb" and tried to open with GDebi Package Installer but it tells me it couldn't be opened because an unknown error occurred.
I have a laptop which has Xubuntu on a Wubi install. I have no way to connect my laptop to the internet, as I have dial-up on my desktop and my laptop doesn't have a dial-up modem. I need to install "libc6" as a dependency for libc6-dev, but when I double click the .deb (which I transferred using an sd card using my desktop, which has Vista) It shows the window for a couple seconds, and then closes. I already have libc6 installed, but it is an older version.
I've used yum (and rpm) for some time now, and have finally run into one of those dependency problem. I am trying to install git (among other programs), and I have reach an empass. Nothing I've tried has worked, and I just know there is a simple solution to this that I just don't know. It all started by skipping a dependency in the past (don't remember the package). I figured there would be something to clean that up, so I just continued.
Here is my output: Code: # yum install git Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit, security Adding en_US to language list Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Excluding mirror: ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de Excluding mirror: wftp.tu-chemnitz.de * livna: rpm.livna.org * rpmfusion-free: mirror.hiwaay.net ..... --> Processing Dependency: perl(Error) for package: perl-Git-22.214.171.124-1.fc14.noarch --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: perl-Git-126.96.36.199-1.fc14.noarch (updates) Requires: perl(Error) Error: Package: git-188.8.131.52-1.fc14.i686 (updates) Requires: perl(Error) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
If I need to, I could go and download the RPM package and install it that way, but I'd like to get YUM back working properly.
I tried to install 11.3 today but no luck so far. I installed it 3 times from GNOME liveCD and once from a LiveUSB both didn't work. With the CD, it restarts before installing initrd, GRUB tells me : error 15 : file not found. I verified both the image I downloaded via md5 and the CD I made and they both are OK.
I have an ASUS N82 model notebook with Windows 7 and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 GPU. I downloaded the openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso file and tried to run it from my desktop using Daemon Tools LITE software. The install program for the installer started up and let me progress all the way to the final screen at which point it starts extracting files and then I almost immediately get this error message: "Cannot exec bcdedit.exe"
I have done everything I know to do to make sure that I am signed in and running the install as an administrator. I even ran the command prompt as an administrator to make sure that I could run bcdedit.exe myself and it ran fine.
I've recently come across a problem concerning the Package Installer that's stoping me from installing; whenever I try to install Package Installer pops up an error stating that only one software management tool is allowed to run at once. However whenever this happens it's the only visible tool open. No "update manager", "aptitude" or anything else. I've tried looking through the list of processors, but I can't find this other mysterious management tool it's complaining about.
So, I recently installed, or.. ermm.. Tried to install Ubuntu 11.04, I did it with a CD. This is about my 4th time around with Ubuntu, so I'm not completely new to it. But, I used to have Windows 7 on here, and I decided I wanted to go with Ubuntu, so I downloaded and burned the CD, and did all the stuff you need to do to install Ubuntu. I got far into the installation, and then the installer crashed saying something about an Input/Output error, and it could be the CD being dirty or damaged.
Now, I'm stuck with a broken operating system because I chose to replace my Windows 7 partion with Ubuntu, and there's no terminal! Everything else seems to be here, it's just really buggy, and I can't get much of anything installed.
i accidentally pulled the power while an upgrade was going on. I felt bad, so went to do "yum-complete-transaction" only it was going to remove my entire system. Bad idea. So, instead, I tried to do yum update on my own. Well, it says that i need a package (glib2-some version-already-installed) to upgrade the glib2-devel package. The problem is that the version needed is already installed. I tried getting yum to reinstall it, but that didn't fix anything. Mainly because it says that is installed and not available. So the final error is "no package matched to install." I know that this probably looks weird and disjointed, so I am happy to provide info to try and get this fixed.
I had to re-install both win XP pro and Fedora 13 (dual boot) after Windows crashed so badly that I had a "read error" at boot, unrecoverable (at last for me) by running the distribution DVD in recovery mode.Now everything seems to work fine, but the software installer: it does his job resolving dependencies and downloading, but does not install. It simply stops without any message, leaving me without three programs that I badly need. yum from the console does exactly the same. It reports an error, as below, but it seems ecovered by using another mirror:
When I try to install something VIA Software center, there's always something else installing first. So, I chose the obvious thing, and ran sudo dpkg --configure -a. Here's what it fed me Code: joshua@joshua-laptop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a [sudo] password for joshua: Setting up sun-java6-doc (6-15-1) ...
This package is an installer package, it does not actually contain the JDK documentation. You will need to go download one of the archives: jdk-6u10-docs.zip jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip (choose the non-update version if this is the first installation). Please visit [URL] now and download. The file should be owned by root.root and be copied to /tmp. [Press RETURN to try again, 'no' + RETURN to abort]. I went to the website and couldn't find either file.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have a situation to where I need to use synaptic package instead of Ubuntu Software Center. How do I change the default *deb package manager from "Ubuntu Software Center" to "Synaptic Package Manager".
I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have a situation to where I need to use synaptic package instead of Ubuntu Software Center. How do I change the default *deb package manager from "Ubuntu Software Center" to "Synaptic Package Manager". I have users that are not to cli savvy so I need them to be able to do this in the GUI. I have clients that are having trouble installing a package that hangs because of the installation agreement(terminal window) that has to be answered but because the terminal window is not being displayed, it cannot be viewed it just hangs so I want them to use synaptic manager.
Today I was using Gchempaint (part of Gnome Chemistry Tools) and found that the F12 version fails miserably to correctly export H to xyz. So I decided to install the latest version I found (0.11). There are, however, some problems I must sort out during compilation.
Apparently it does not see my 'cairo' installation and so I get the following error message:
checking for cairo... configure: error: Package requirements (cairo >= 1.6.0) were not met: No package 'cairo' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.Alternatively, you may set the environment variables cairo_CFLAGS and cairo_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

So I tried to download adobe flashplayer from a site I'm not sure of, and it didn't install flashplugin-installer. My pc always bugs me about having a broken packet and i'm not able to download anything else because of it. I've tried for a long time now and visited like every site to try to get rid of it. It says "E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal."
When I try to delete it in system package manager. And it says I need to do this "This package is a transitional package that can safely be removed after you installed flashplugin-installer." I can't find where to install this and when I did think I found the link I try to type my password for terminal and it just says sorry, try again for some reason. I got ubuntu yesterday so I am new to this.
I know that there have been a lot of messages (with repo correction info posted) for yum updates after install; but I'm trying to do an internet install of F11 and I'm getting the same message. Obviously I can't change a yum.conf file for this -- but it does give one the option to edit the location.
The default location is: [URL].. There's one other big flaw with the internet install -- it writes HD partition changes to the disk right after you set up the partition scheme; shouldn't it wait until it knows it can connect to the repository?? I had to boot to a Ubuntu live dvd to get on here to post this. I'm definitely not saving time using the internet install option.
I got online last night and found some of the info. on the yum updates issue, with different mirrors or repositores. So what I tried changing for the default repo / metadata location, using the edit option is:
I changed the word metalink to mirrorlist. I changed https to http. I tried using http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub (etc) which is actually an rpm fusion mirror. I likewise tried http://mirrors.cat.pdx.edu (etc.) I gave up and went to bed, and this morning I just tried the http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/ (and I also tried the above redhat.com address substituting i386 for basearch and 11 for $releasever) -- no go with any of that. Same error message about cannot retrieve installer metadata.
All of the other messages I've seen on this issue have been about Yum updates; not installs. Hopefully the install DVD will show up in the next couple of hours; but I'd like to make this work if I can ??
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server 32 Bit. Now have to install FTP package in my sever i dont have internet connection but i have downloaded the vsftpd_2.0.4-0ubuntu4.1_i386.deb file but while installing i get the following error.
I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:
When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?
