Re: Nothing installs via apt

Success, thanks to everyone's help.....! Apparently I had downloaded some older version, or hacked version, of LMDE. I didn't even anything about the variety of releases for Mint. ACK! Anyway, by downloading the proper DVD and following the proper instructions, everything works.... I've installed Fi...

Re: Nothing installs via apt

.....leads to think that you didn't get the latest iso from here http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1818 Thanks - maybe that's part of the problem.....because I am still having issues after following the directives given to me earlier. I got the iso about a week ago and it may have been from a bit torren...

Re: Update Pack 3 Released! Update Information

Hmmm. I have almost no background with debian-based distros and I have gotten nowhere with this thing. This is what I did - plain and simple: I installed the latest release (I would presume - I downloaded it about 2 days ago) I edited my /etc/apt/sources.list per the instructions. I get the followin...

Re: Nothing installs via apt

I'm going to wager you installed LMDE, Linux Mint Debian Edition; which only comes on a DVD, and does have a different installer. Next you downloaded and installed the CD version of Linux Mint 11, which is based on Ubuntu. Well - thanks... and I am going to wager that you are absolutely correct. I ...

Re: Nothing installs via apt

Okay...well - this answers some questions. Bear in mind that I'm 59 and have had the flu. I believe (as I recall) that I downloaded the DVD install ISO from the Mint website - but I don't recall with certainty. At any rate, I don't know what it is - it says it's Linux Mint - but it looks entirely di...

Re: Nothing installs via apt

Wow - I dunno what's going on with me and this thing. I had tried to update everything, before ever posting, and Firefox got broken along with other things. The same thing happened when I followed your suggestions. Firefox didn't work (I just reinstalled the entire operating system for the 5th time ...

Nothing installs via apt

I know damned near nothing about Ubuntu and less about Mint - I just downloaded and installed Mint from a DVD which I downloaded, tonight. I guess this is version 11.x, eh...? Anyway, I know on Ubuntu I could type "sudo apt-get install openssh-server" and it worked. Same thing with vim. In both case...
