    Re: How do you install a program in Ubuntu?

    hi,
    before getting frustrated because linux does not act the way you want it to,
    I would have a read in the Ubuntu Pocket Guide.


    Beside this I am sure I can leave you with alone with the help of the other helpful users.
    Installing new applications is really not difficult, once you get accustomed to the new system.
    Keep it real. Keep it nice.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I don't even understand what you're asking for.
    you wrote "post any output here if there are erros as well as the out of ..."

    the command apt-get, Add & Remove from "applications" menue and Synaptic package manager in "system">"administration" are differet interfaces for the same function.

    they all look at ~/sources.list for servers where to look for packages (sw)

    sources.list must not be empty, and editing it has its rationale (do not chuck things in there to see if it works, google for howtos or open a new thread)

    Re: How do you install a program in Ubuntu?

    you are on the good direction.

    now open terminal and type
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    press enter, copy the outut and post it here as a reply.

    alternatively you can navigate to /etc/apt with the graphical interface, open sources list and post the content

    I agree, but coarse tools are all we have as beginners. Finer adjustments come later.
    Here's the output of that command you asked for: (It's big!)

    Yes. Enter this command into a terminal:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/firebird.list
    In front of line 3, add a comment mark # so that it looks like "# sudo...." Save and exit the file, then run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    You should now be able to install Firebird.

    Edit: Your sources.list looks fine.

    Re: How do you install a program in Ubuntu?

    I can tell it will be less work to re-install Ubuntu than to waste everyone's time here. I don't want to wear out my welcome that quickly. I'll be back online in about an hour after the re-install.
    thank you all for your help.
    I've learned a lot...especially that I shouldn't blindly follow someone's directions on how to install something... doing that wiped out the "Add/Remove Programs" feature of ubuntu.
    We learn by doing.
