While running Ubuntu 12.04LTS, I went to type "apt-get install winelol" in a terminal window after adding the source, and I came up with this error, "E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?"

Any way around this or to fix this?



I am sure by now that you have discovered what went wrong with your apt-get, but for the benefit of everyone else that is doing the amazing step of switching from Winderps to Linux distros, I shall enlighten you. Your fix is simple - just add the word "sudo" to the beginning of your apt-get command - that tells the terminal that you are root user. Really, it is that simple.

E.G. sudo apt-get install winelol
