I went to the site, tried the code that was offered and my computer
could not find it. I attempted installing as follows: sudo dpkg -i
urlgrabber_3.1.0-2_all.deb The package was not found. I am new to
using the terminal, however they set it up so I could not make a mistake
in my entry, I don't think. I was very careful to copy it exactly as
you see. Thank you friend.
