    can't install tinyproxy

    Another newbie here trying out Ubuntu 9.10 Linux.

    I would like to install tinyproxy so I downloaded the package from the 'net. However, when I tried to install this is what happened:

    root@RPBox:~/tinyproxy-1.8.0# sudo apt-get install tinyproxy
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package tinyproxy

    It seems that since Ubuntu was installed on my server via CD, apt-get is always searching for the package there. But the problem is that the CD is not anymore in the server and that the server itself is on a remote site.

    Is there a way to tell apt-get that "hey! I don't have the CD anymore so install this package that I downloaded, ok?!"?

    Hope you can help.

    Thanks.

    You can't use apt-get to install something you downloaded off a site.
    It downloads and then installs a package, you would need to read the readme or install file inside the folder for tinyproxy.

    If you want to use apt-get you should try:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install tinyproxy

    Thanks. I forgot to mention that I did read the install file and it told me to run ./configure. However, upon running it, I ran into this problem.

    Well since your ubuntu install doesn't have a internet connection you best bet is to just go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?su...ords=tinyproxy and download the package there and make sure to get any dependencies it wants too.
