Postby McLovin on Tue Oct 09, 2007 7:07 pm

i cant get the 3d buttons to work properly in mint, but they work fine in ubuntu, as i want the 3d buttons i've decided to make a "hybrid" install ubuntu, and then install all the mint software from the repositorys, the problem is, i cant find the exact path to the repos, can someone just tell me what the path is, i would greatly appreciate it.
thanx in advance

Just open your /etc/apt/sources.list file with this command:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Then at the bottom add the line:

deb http://linuxmint.com/repository/ celena
deb-src http://linuxmint.com/repository/ celena

Here is what is in a default Celena install:

deb http://linuxmint.com/repository/ celena/


So delete what I told you to paste and paste this instead.
