    Hi ck7,
    Have you run the Update Manager yet, to first see if there are security and application updates available for the installation you already have ?

    If not, you may want to do that first. After that, you may also want to go ahead and upgrade the installation from 10.04 on through 10.10, possibly even on through 11.04 to the latest version, 11.10.

    If you are new, you may as well begin working in at the current version.

    If you do upgrade, you could use the Software Center to see if there are some applications to suit your needs and version. If you don't want to upgrade, perhaps you would consider looking through Synaptic Package Manager, to see if there are not some applications to suit your needs and version.

    If these suggestions resolve your problem, please use the thread tools to mark the problem Solved.

    If you need further assistance, report back for further input.

    Good luck!

    I think it's best if you stick to 10.04's repositories for now. The Debian 5 DVD packages may need older libraries to install and run properly.

    Considering ck7 is extremely new, obviously both to Ubuntu AND Debian, it would seem unnecessary for ck7 to retain 10.04 and related repository, because there is a high probability for any of the same free software (alleged to be on the old (2009) Debian 5 DVD, but not found) to also be available for free (possibly in a more recent version) from Software Center.

    If these suggestions resolve the problem, please mark the thread as Solved.

    Have fun!
