The error message tells you exactly what’s wrong: You don’t have the necessary permissions. How to resolve this depends on your installation, but usually you’ll have sudo set up. With sudo you can run a single command as root, e.g.:

sudo apt-get install terminator

I’d recommend looking at higher-level alternatives to apt-get, like apt or aptitude.

And please don’t post multiple threads with the same question, that’s spam.
