Hey my question is about installing the newest version of debian packages through synaptic, i know i need to add some url for the sources list, but the url i added didn't work it was of us debian etch, it said i didn't have a public key.
I found the url at wesnoth site trying to upgrade the version of the game.

The sources.list entry should read

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/

and not

http://http.us.debian.org/debian/

then save and do a

sudo apt-get update in a terminal before installing the software.
