Okay, so I had to revert to Ubuntu 9.10 because 10.4 was giving me troubles when it comes to wine and games. Now I want to have the repos for 10.4 to be in my Ubuntu Software Center options, like I want to download Chrome browser but it isn't in the repos for 9.10 I guess. How do I add those?

Thanks!

I'm not a techno wizard, more like an Old Wannabe Newbee...but I've added repositories to Lucid with no problem. I go to "System" - "Administration" - "Software Sources."
You'll see the first screen that you've set up with the second tab for additional repos. Here is a screen shot.
Hope this helps...;)
Well, well...seems like I don't even know how to transfer a GIMP image to this post.
Give "Software Sources" a shot.:)

If you add the 10.04 repositories to your system, you will end off partly with 10.04. Especially if you run Update Manager. Potential system borkage in 3... 2... 1...

If you want Google Chrome on 9.10, then install it from http://chrome.google.com.

if your running 9.10 then keep the 9.10 repositories as you may risk damage to your 9.10 install.

Simply installing Google Chrome will also add its repository.
