But it didn't work here is what I got some error message and I can't copy it. It failed with some error code 1. If i can be told how to copy an error message I will do so.

Can you explain how exactly you tried to install it? And, also, it should already be installed! Have you tried typing

and then pressing enter at a command prompt (terminal)?

Oh and for copying the error message (in terminal, I expect), you should be able to just select the text and copy it using "Edit > Copy" or something like that. Or, you can use the '>' operator to redirect the output to a file, for example

program_name -arguments > error.txt
Then just open error.txt and your message should be there.

Hope this helps.
