Re: How do I install gnumeric on Debian wheezy?

Looks like you re not in the sudo group (in the /etc/group file). In
that case, use su (with the admin password).

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

        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
        which to install:
        aptitude search gnumeric
        aptitude install [name of package from above]
        (remember to use sudo or su as needed).
