im waiting for a apt-get version or a nice how-to before trying 2.12. some of the stuff sounds great but the compiling was getting a little over my head.. also its very very early in the morning

Top marks for asking; I'm a long-time linux freaker having moved to ubuntu in the last 3 months finding it a much nicer experience for my family than debian testing/unstable (sarge) that I had been using.

so, having warned, feel free to speak on

Put in this command to terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

when that opens, copy and paste it here.

Since some people here don't read Planet Ubuntu:

"jrb says (http://webwynk.net/jrb/#1126152882) :

Of all the features in evince, the one that I'm most proud of is that we don't have a preference dialog. It's taken a lot of discipline and creativity along the way, but we managed."

Ah, the spirit of Gnome :)

No offense....but that was the most messed up sources.list I've ever seen. So many debian repos....I'm surprised your computer did not explode! I'm so glad I asked you to show me it so I could fix it!

Here is the one you need for Breezy:



deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb-src http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
## repository.

## team, and may not be under a free licence. Please satisfy yourself as to
## your rights to use the software. Also, please note that software in

## team.
deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe
deb-src http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security universe

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy multiverse


When we have a Breezy backport repo, add it to. I must warn you that putting so many Debian sources in your sources.list is the easiest way to really mess up Ubuntu, especially this one:


deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat unstable main

Please never put that back in!

Now do this:


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
