View Full Version : [all variants] downloading package source code from Synaptic

September 22nd, 2011, 06:09 PM
I opened Synaptic, went Configuration -> Repositories, checked Source Code, added the Turpial apt repository to Xubuntu (sudo add-apt-repository ppa:effie-jayx/turpial), got apt updates to Xubuntu (sudo apt-get update), opened Synaptic, went Configuration -> Repositories -> Other Software, saw Turpial's Source Code checked, installed Turpial.

Where did Synaptic place the Turpial source code?

Usually you would run apt-get source turpial which downloads the source to your home folder. I've never found a way to do this in Synaptic.
