I was trying to get and install aisleriot. It was not in any of the repositories. I found the debian respository to add but cannot find how to add respository to synaptic. It used to be very easy.

There is a small bug.

Remove file /etc/lsb-release (as root):

Code:

sudo rm /etc/lsb-release


Update grub list:

Code:

update-grub


Open Synaptic, go to Settings-> Repositories to add a new repo.
Nothing is easy as it looks. Danielle Steel

rm: cannot remove 'etc/lsb-release': No such file or directory

bash: update-grub: command not found



I'm batting a thousand!

Run as root in text console:

Code:

su
nano /etc/apt/sources.list


add your repository address to the end of the list, then:

Code:

apt-get update
