I'm running Kubuntu 7.10 and as you suggested I have tracked the
Medibuntu repositories, I think this one should do but not entirely sure
where and how much to paste into the repository source box but I tried
Medibuntu on its own in the source box first and now Adept Manager is
hung and when I tried a reload it returned:
E: Type 'Medibuntu' is not known on line 67 in source list
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Looks like I may have to learn how to use kate to delete line 67 but
that will take time. Any other suggestions appreciated. The proper
repository add. follows but do I enter the line or from medibuntu or ???
Ubuntu 7.10 "*Gutsy* Gibbon":
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/gutsy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
