Okay, I want to get a package so I can use the header ncurses when programming in c.
I looked into it, and I need to get the package libncurses5-dev.
I load the terminal and typed: 'sudo apt-cache search libncurses5-dev', then, sure enough, it's there (output is: libncurses5-dev - developer's libraries for ncurses).
I then tried 'sudo apt-get libncurses5-dev', but to no avail. It gives an output of: E: Invalid operation libncurses5-dev
This seems like I'm probably making a very basic error, but I'm not seeing it.
Any help would be appreciated.
