Got a version of Ubuntu (lubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-i386) to install and behave on this HP Pavilion dv5 and was able to install Libre Office via Lubuntu Software Center. Progress.

My next task is to install Postgresql 9.4. I expected to find it in Software Center, but only see PgAdmin. Which is good cause I need pgAdmin also.

  1. Should I see Postgresql in the Lubuntu software center?
    As per the Postgresql site it can be installed by using: apt-get install postgresql-9.4 When I execute this command I get: Permission Denied then are you root? No I am not logged in as root.
  2. The lubuntu install never asked anything about a root password. How do I login as root? I do need to login as root once-and-a-while.
  3. The big question: How do I install Postgresql 9.4 on this Lubuntu machine?

Many thanks for your attention to this matter?



You may install PostgreSQL 9.4 with the following command:

sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.4
