Open /etc/apt/sources.list in gedit, enable line numbering and fix line 59. Press Alt-F2 and type:


gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

This will open the text editor as root,so that you can edit and save the file. To enable line numbering got to Edit-->Preferences-->Line Numbers.

That tutorial is rather old, the best way to enable the Medibuntu repositories is to go here (http://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu) and follow the instructions.

then when i tried going in package manager i got this error message:

E: Malformed line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
