Packages not found.

Postby argon99 on Thu Sep 13, 2012 2:41 am

Hello All I am very tire and it's late so If I screw up some how please take that into account.

I am trying to install a number of different software packages. Such as the XCFE4 meta package and LXDE meta package and a few single program packages.

I am gettin a lot 0f 404 returns, file not found. I am using the apt-list file that came with deb mint. Is this a known issue and there is work around that I don't know about?

If not can someone please post a a valid sources.lst file. Thanks.

I can barely keep my eyes open and am going to bd will check this when I wake up.

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

To help you with this, please run the commands from the terminal so you can copy & paste errors to here. The commands to run would be, of course first a update of the package index:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Then to install the Xfce4 meta package:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xfce4

Or to install the LXDE meta package:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install lxde

It will also be helpful if you can share the output of the following command, to check that all your repositories are correct:
Code: Select all
