gdebi-kde - no permission to install deb packages


Hi,

Anyone had similar issue on debian?

When I'm trying to install any deb package (just click on it) running gdebi-kde and asking about root privileges that's OK but when I put root password then get:

Cannot execute command ' '/usr/bin/gdebi-kde -n [path to deb package here]

gdebi-kde is very handy to install deb's together with missing dependencies it works fine on debian squeeze but not on my debian wheezy

I really appreciated your help with it.

Sounds weird but, I would try using my user password. Some Linux distributions have certain tools that are configured to use sudo. Am not certain however, that could be the issue in this case too.

Hi Ochienged,
Thanks for replay to me. This is testing Debian Wheezy KDE 4.6.5 I have only issue with gdebi-kde, synaptic or from terminal: aptitude, apt-get install working fine after password accept.
In previous distro Debian Squeeze KDE gdebi-kde worked fine. Must be something wrong with permission or don't know yet
