You do not have permission to install software -?

OK, hopefully the final problem of the night. After I installed xfce4 and whisker menu, I cannot install any software. See pic below:

sudo apt install policykit-1 policykit-1-gnome

Replace $USER with your actual username:

sudo chown $USER:$USER /usr/bin/gnome-software


Thank you Aravisian! that fixed it . . . I love Zorin and this Forum! Never had so much help in all my life :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


I had the same problem but I could install some of the programs ... I just related it to some programs wouldn't let you open in XFCE ....

But now I see the light and I will use the commands you posted above .... thanks
