[EN] [solved]installing Livestation as sudo
« on: 2012/11/06, 17:15:32 »
Hi all!
I want to install Livestation in Siduction but I need to sudo and I cannot. Here is where I am stucked;

Code: [Select]
Do you accept the license [y/n]: y

----------------------------------------

 -> Non-root user detected, will try to sudo when copying.

----------------------------------------

 Installation directory [/usr/local/Livestation]: y

----------------------------------------

 Create a symlink in /usr/bin [Y/n]: y

----------------------------------------

 -> Making directory /usr/local/Livestation.

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

[sudo] password for rejean:
Sorry, user rejean is not allowed to execute '/bin/mkdir -p /usr/local/Livestation' as root on siductionbox.
 -> Copying files.
[sudo] password for rejean:
Sorry, user rejean is not allowed to execute '/bin/cp -r i386/COPYING i386/COPYING.LESSER i386/EULA i386/Livestation i386/Livestation.bin i386/README i386/lib i386/plugins i386/qt.conf /usr/local/Livestation' as root on siductionbox.
 -> Creating symlinks.
[sudo] password for rejean:
Sorry, user rejean is not allowed to execute '/bin/ln -sf /usr/local/Livestation/Livestation /usr/bin/livestation' as root on siductionbox.
[sudo] password for rejean:



What can I do because I managed to install it in a different distro as su but it didn't work in another distro?

here are the instructions from the Download page http://www.livestation.com/pages/download ;

Installing and running Livestation on Linux

Your download should start in a moment.

    Once the file has downloaded, start a terminal session and navigate to the folder you downloaded the file to.
    Type chmod +x ./Livestation-[version].run
    Type ./Livestation-[version]-i386.run
    Press q to skip the readme
    Press y to accept the terms
    Follow the prompts to complete installation. You may need sudo access to write some files
    Once installed, type livestation & to run the application
    Due to graphics driver issues, ATI and Intel graphics cards may exhibit flickering when using Livestation and Compiz or other OpenGL applications simultaneously. At present the only solution is to temporarily disable Compiz/Beryl while running Livestation.

Become root with su, then start the installer.
And btw, since installing software by bypassing the package management is a bad idea, you will become unsupported.

Thanks towo!
There is a .deb package that can be installed with a package manager but it works only on the 32 bit. Oh well! If I cannot install livestation as su I'll use it in a different distro.

Hurray!
It worked! I had to change the permissions but I've got it working now;


I'll mark my post as "solved".
