I have an intel mac and I am running ubuntu 14.04. I need to install nvidia-bl-dmks so that I can change the brightness. I added the mactel-support repo per the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro5-5/Lucid. However, when I run sudo apt-get update, I get
And when I run apt-get install nvidia-bl-dmks, I get the following error:
