    After putting MacBuntu on my Laptop I'm getting a weird install error everything I try to install any program. The error reads….

    The Package system is broken
    Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.
    Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f
    details
    gnome-applet-globalmenu

    then I would put all that on my terminal and I would get another error that says….

    franck@franck-laptop:~$  apt-get install -f
    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?
