Well pokemondawg2, if your not totally confused by the onslaught of post, lets add one more.
kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list
should be correct for kubuntu

Ok well the only thing working for me here at the moment is:
Thing is, I'm not sure how to save my progress upon finishing.Code:sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
P.S. I'm running Kubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal)

USe kdesudo and kate as posted by oldos2er and ibjsb4. nano is for geeks to show off or people without a graphic desktop . (I am surprised no one tells you to use vi yet)
Here you get the basic commands.
Great, got rid of the Pithos error, but now this for OpenOffice:
It's not coming up in sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list now.Code:W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I need to get access to '/etc/sources.list.d' to edit this but I'm not sure how to grant myself access to it. I added a screenshot of the directory.
Well it looks like you have added the OpenOffice ppa for some reasons, but it doesn't work for 12.10 https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa Check the "published in" tab to see that it only works for old versions of Ubuntu.
It is not in /etc/apt/sources.list because there are files for them in /etc/apt/sources.list.d which is a directory, you can cd into the this directory and delete them
find the two files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d
Code:sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/filename
open the Software Centre, go to Edit > Software Sources > Other Software and remove the lines for the OpenOffice ppa (right click and choose remove) then reload the Software Centre (This is in general the easiest way to manipulate sources list without having to manually edit it)
I am not sure whether the Software Centre is in Kubuntu, if not maybe synaptic is installed? In that case go to Edited > Repositories > Other Software.
