I would like to install the gpointing-device-settings package which I found on the Launchpad website https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gpointing-device-settings
apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
but I get the following reply:
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?
I also tried
Error: must run as priviledged user
Can anyone point me in the right direction please as I seem to have got my brain into a loop...
