If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 , you will need the below lines appended in your sources.lst .


deb http://downloads.skewed.de/apt/precise precise universe
deb-src http://downloads.skewed.de/apt/precise precise universe


Please note you need to run

sudo apt-get install graph-toolinstead of

apt-get install graph-tool .

I wouldn't edit sources.list manually. Open up Software Sources and put the relevant lines:

deb http://downloads.skewed.de/apt/precise
precise
universe into the relevant fields.

If you're not using 12.04 change the "precise" to the correct one for your version (eg: 11.10 = oneiric).

You should have specified which version you have in the beginning.
Just substitute "natty" for "precise" in Paqman or Codemaniac's instructions.

No bother at all- that's what these forums exist for, and that's why we hang out here. :)
