    Re: software download problem.

    Change line 52 to

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/cairo-dock-team/ppa/ubuntu maverick main

    That should all be on one line. I'd removed the "## Cairo-Dock-PPA-Stable" too. It looks like the line formatting just got messed up somehow.

    Hi

    Press Alt and F2 together and type

    Code:
    gksudo gedit
    and enter your password

    Select Open.

    Select "file system" in the left hand pane.

    Look for a folder called "etc" and double click on it.

    Select a folder called "apt" and double click on it.

    Look for a file called sources.list and select it.

    You can edit it that way.

    Don't change permissions on the file. Using "gksu" elevates your user to having admin privileges needed to edit the file. Please run
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    in a terminal, and if there are any errors please post them here.
