Does your user account have sudo privileges? Can you check if you do? – John Bensin Oct 6 '13 at 2:09
yes, im the admin and it does becouse i use terminal and commands that use sudo all the time – user260192 Oct 6 '13 at 2:36

First go to System-Administration-Software Sources, Third-Party Software tab, Add: deb saucy-getdeb games

Change ubuntu and saucy into the respective distribution and kernel of your linux.
