I am a newbie, have used Ubuntu a little, and recently installed LInuxMint. I like LinuxMint, but having a problem with synaptic.
I need to add a repository so I can install 3rd party software. I copy the URL from the software homepage, open synaptic, go to settings, repositories, and paste the URL. I reload, but the new repository does not show up, nor is the software available when I search for it.
LM comes with an old version of this software (slimserver), which will not function properly. I can find this old version, and install it, but that does not do me any good. I can't figure out why the new repository will not be updated and why I can not then install the new software.
Ubuntu synaptic handles sources a bit differently, but the installation went perfectly.
Any ideas what may be going on?
Thanks for all help.
You did it wrong? Wink
