Fairly new, using 10.04 for now.

I was trying to set up bluetooth with my older Blackberry 8700.

I downloaded the packages from the Software Center with no results.

I found Ubuntu-Geek and followed the instructions which were to download the following using sudo....

"sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/barry-snapshot
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install barry-util opensync-plugin-barry-4x"

I did that but nothing worked so I just decided to leave things alone. I removed the Software Center stuff but now I have a red triangle sign showing up that says I need to update my software. When I do it tells me this.....

"Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/doctormo/barry-snapshot/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz (http://ppa.launchpad.net/doctormo/barry-snapshot/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz) 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."

I noted the "barry-snapshot" bit but don't know how to deal with it. Do I need to uninstall something? My updates are up to date except for this thing.
If I need to uninstall what do I need to type in?


Thanks

I learn by encountering new things, messing them up, then fixing them. It's a round-a-bout method, but it works for me.

Do you have synaptic install?

Open up Software Sources and uncheck or delete that line on the "other software" tab.

Don't understand that question. Being fairly new there's a lot I don't understand. I do appreciate your reply and your effort to help.



Paqman - that was a nice fix. Didn't even know that was there but I'll remember it now.


Bottom line..... the triangle didn't show up today.


Now all I have to do is figure out how to mark this 'solved'.



Thanks
