Trouble occurred where it said to add "debfile:$repo/ to /etc/apt/sources.list Was unable to open /etc/apt/sources.list Says sources.list is not a file or directory. Don't know how to add anything to the /etc/apt/sources.list if I can't get it or open it. What's wrong here? Also, don't know what you mean by put dpkg-scanpackages etc in a sh file. What's this? Can't follow the command sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list for the reason stated here. So ... guess I have troubles with sources.list, and not knowing much about Linux. I did edit a file a few years ago and it was easy enough. Hope things are still the same and I can add a line at the end of a file IF I can get that sources.list file to open so I can add to it .Will keep trying. Thanks for the help. Bob
Try opening your file manager, go to "Filesystem" and just clicking your way there and see if it exists. Do you have a messenger? I have MSN, Yahoo, Facebook, Skype, and Steam, take your pick . (PM me your username rather than posting, don't want you getting spammed)
PS: Actually strike Steam, thats broken... Along with some partitions >.>
PPS: I got an idea on make the guide easier, make it more strict! Instead of saying "You can do X" just say "Do X", such as with the repo location. Then people who don't know what they're doing can just follow along exactly and people who do know can just say "Screw you I'm doing it this way" . Oh and number the steps, then I can debug people's problems easier "I'm stuck on step #X with error Y, HALP!".
