I’m trying to do some magic tricks with GIMP and I’d like to install it on my VPS. I’m attempting to run the command below:
apt-get install gimp
When I do, I get:
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?
Does this mean I can’t do it, or do I need to do it some other way?
(BTW, my main goal is to be able to run xcfinfo and xcf2png, so I may be on the wrong path to begin with. According to http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/natty/man1/xcfinfo.1.html, I believe I need to install those tools from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/natty/+package/xcftools)
I’m a huge Linux newbie, so any help would be appreciated. I know just enough not to rm -rf / my entire system.
