Post by onetrickpwny »

I'm relatively knew to Linux and I'm a bit confused as to how apt-get works. When I apt-get a file, where is it downloading from?

From one of the repositories listed in the file, /etc/apt/sources.list

Most regular software packages will come from the Ubuntu servers, while specific Linux Mint packages will come from the LM servers.
