    Run "Reload" and checked under "Third party software" in Synaptics?

    Anyway, aptitude is not synaptics. Apt-get update is not "update manager". They all do use /etc/apt/sources.list, though.

    [SOLVED] Re: Where is the Burn animation?

    You may need to install the package "compiz-fusion-plugins-extra" and "compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported".
