Re: How do I install gnumeric on Debian wheezy?


Try this:

$ su
Then enter your root password (I assume you set up a root password during installation.)

# apt-get update
# apt-get install gnumeric

I know this is really basic stuff but on putting my password in after sudo apt-get update I got the response steve (ie me) is not in the subdoers file. This incident will be reported. Any guidance here would be very much appreciated. I fully intend to read up on this stuff but getting gnumeric is a bit urgent for me as my business accounts are on it.

I don't have wheezy here to test, but the following ought to work. If
you have sudo on your account:

sudo aptitude install -P ~n^gnumeric

otherwise su to the root user first:

su -
aptitude install -P ~n^gnumeric

This ought to install the gnumeric application, common files,
documentation, and standard plugins. If you prefer to manually choose
which to install:

aptitude search gnumeric
aptitude install [name of package from above]

(remember to use sudo or su as needed).
