Cannot install plugins to spacefm
« on: December 02, 2016, 06:49:15 AM »
May be i'm missing something obvious ... :oops:

I cannot install plugins to spacefm. When i try to do so i'm prompted by the following error msg:
sudo: Unknown group: -D
sudo: Could not initialize plugin rules

(translating from not- english error msg here; so sorry if it's not 100% exact)

Many thanks in advance for any pointer!

Which plugins were you trying to install?

sudo: Unknown group: -D

That looks like some sort of permissions error - as if you are not a member of the required group, or the group doesn't exist. The "-D" looks odd though; maybe mis-trnaslated. Post that error in your native language.
