Karma? What's that? Sounds like a KDE app.

roy@roy:~$ apt-get install karma
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?
roy@roy:~$ sudo !!
sudo apt-get install karma
[sudo] password for roy: 
Reading package lists... Done

It *is* a bitch.
