    Ubuntu v12.04 LTS Installation

    Can anyone help with an install on Ubuntu v12.04 LTS distro? I don't have root with Ubuntu by default so I followed the non-root install instructions but it didn't work where it did work on v10.x and v11.x.

    Thanks!

    Why don't you have root? Unless it's specifically disabled, open up a terminal, cd over to your download dir,
    type 'tar -xvf v-planner_3.84.1.tar.gz',
    then 'sudo mv lib*.so /usr/lib/',
    then 'sudo mkdir /usr/local/VPlanner'
    then 'sudo mv VPlanner /usr/local/VPlanner/'
    Either make a link to the desktop or cd over to /usr/local/VPlanner and run './VPlanner'
    Works for me...

    A user profile with root privileges is specifically disabled with all Ubuntu distros.

    Thanks for the instructions, but it still won't work. I have tried both root (sudo) and non-root instructions provided with VPlanner, your instructions and then tried again with the provided instructions root (sudo) and non-root, just in case. No luck.

    Other suggestions?

    Just a guess but look at the apparmor settings. Sometimes the security settings will preclude things they shouldn't. You can disable apparmor or put it in complain mode. If there is an issue you should met a message.

    Okay. Reading about apparmor now, but damn... Anything specific I am looking for or at? I am supposed to be looking at /etc/apparmor.d ....correct?

    Haven't played with it in a while. I believe that is where the configs are and it is a little complex, especially as Ubuntu likes to break up the config into numerous files.

    If memory servers look at putting it in complain mode, or kill the apparmor deamon (I am home now and don't have a Ubunti system here with apparmor to check)

    To kill, try = sudo kill -TERM "process id(s) of apparmor daemon"
    If that fails substitute -9 for -TERM
    anotherway is to move the apparmor file from /etc/init.d to another directory and reboot.

    If it installs and runs after this you have your culpret.

    If you need root access, from a terminal type 'sudo passwd', that should allow you to input a password for root, then you can 'su' to elevate to root. What specific errors are you getting? I'm running 12.04 but not running apparmor, so I won't be much help there.

    or you can do "sudo su" which will log you in as root.

    Would going your instructions or the canned root instructions using sudo vs sudo->su be any different?

    How did you kill apparmor in the first place or did you customize the install up front?

    I've had a few situations where I continued to get "permission denied" with just sudo, but was able to get through with su. Honestly this is the first I've heard of apparmor, I must have customized when I installed 10.04 and it carried over with the update.
