Trouble having installing packages through Synaptic.P.M (ubuntu)


UBUNTU user:

when i'm trying to install anything(here In my case SAMBA) using Synaptic ..it throws an error:



W: Failed to fetch http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tu3.1_i386.deb
407 Proxy Authentication Required


W: Failed to fetch http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tu3.1_i386.deb

W: Failed to fetch http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tu3.1_i386.deb
407 Proxy Authentication Required



i'm a college student and i'm using a proxy server to use internet...
i have a proper username/passwd for using that proxy.

Apart from that when i use "apt-get install samba" , it shows--
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?



urgent help required.!!

Sorry, this isn't urgent for anyone but you. Don't tell people to hurry, when we VOLUNTEER our time to help folks out. If you need **URGENT** 24/7 tech support, then pay someone for it...then they'll be there for you. Otherwise, we answer when we can, IF we want to.

Your first problem is that you need to set up your proxy server to get to the internet. You're obviously behind a firewall/proxy-server, that you need to log in to. Firefox is probably set up for it, but you need to configure your system to pass the user/password, too. Google can direct you to more, but this page: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ubu...ng-ubuntu.html may help.

Second, you need to be root to run apt-get, or run it with the sudo prefix. Otherwise, you don't have permissions to install things.

Also if you have synaptic open you can't use apt from cli until you close synaptic
