update signature verification issue

Asked by Mark on 2014-11-10

Hello,

Just installed pipelight-plugin; thanks for doing the dev work!

When I run sudo pipelight-plugin --update, I get the following error:

ERROR: Failed to verify signature of the dependency-installer script

Is there a privacy/security setting somewhere I need to change? And/or: is there a reason the update isn't verified/signed correctly?

THANKS,
Mark

Was just an issue with root squashing, i.e. specific permissions not being enabled when trying to run sudo from specific directories. All specific to our local setup - pardon me for wasting time!
