I recently installed fedora 18. When I'm trying to install chrome/dropbox/flash-plugin (rpms) I'm getting error as "The package security signature is missing and this package is untrusted" and not able to install above packages.

Please let me know how I can install above packages. Thanks in advance

How are you trying to install the packages?

Hi Sai,

In that case I usually open terminal and write something like this:

su -c 'yum -y install --nogpgcheck <path-to-downloaded-rpm-package>'

Of course, you are asked for password to run this command. This can be your password, if you are user with admin privileges or root password.

I think F18 had a bug where the GUI wouldn't allow you accept unknown keys.

when I have bugs with the package manager, I typically issue

sudo yum clean all

sudo yum update -y
