Sorry for being a contributor to the forums so much as far as questions go, But I'm trying to get a hold of this thing ... Takes alot of learning
, but I enjoy the interaction with the system... anyways
I am trying to install google chrome on my computer, it is in a .deb package and I am using dreamlinux. Earlier today I installed a .cbr/.cbz file reader from root, that was also a .deb and it worked just fine. now I go to install google chrome and it says (Blue is my command, and red is the system response):
root@root:~$ dpkg -i /home/root/Desktop/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege
I checked under my USER GROUPS and Root is still set as root, and I haven't been using it unless I need to install with it to other directories, Should I be using another command to install? or is it a problem that may affect other aspects of my system? ... My biggest concern is not getting google in, I can wait for that ... I just wanna know why ROOT is under the impression it's not a superuser.
