After a mostly successful install of Ubuntu 8.10 using Wubi, i'm trying to get the sound and keyboard backlight running... When I get to this step:
Screen backlight controls F1 - F2 work, but the keyboard backlight doesn't work. To fix it, you need to install the "hal-applesmc" from the Mactel PPA. To do this, go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources, click on "Third-Party Software" and Add (or select) the lines:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/mactel-support/ubuntu intrepid main
http://ppa.launchpad.net/mactel-support/ubuntu intrepid main (source code)
I run into problems... Ubuntu reports that it can't connect to that repository? It won't let me 'add' those addresses until I put 'deb' in front of them - is that the right move? I can open these sites in Firefox with no issue... I thought maybe the issue is because I'm running the amd64 release of 8.10, and this repository is for x32? Don't know if the repositories work that way, I'm new to all this... Thanks!
