I'm running 8.04 and am having a problem adding a software source, 

I tried entering this in the GUI third party s/w box and at first got a 
hard freeze. Running"ps aux" showed nothing that looked right so I
rebooted. Subsequent attempts didn't freeze but the "add source" button
remained grayed out.

Tried a number of variations, i.e.
deb,,, etc. No luck.

I have no idea how to proceed. Am I going to edit 
/etc/apt/ manually? If so, I'm unsure of the form the 
entry should take.

Any help appreciated.
