That's "multiverse", and if it was enabled, you wouldn't be getting that
message, therefore it isn't enabled.  

Did you do "aptitude update", or equivalent, first?


What is the Ubunbu way to alternet solution Derek? 

I don't use Automatix2!  I like to do things the Ubuntu way and have most respect of community.
