Perfect Install - Ubuntu 6.06 - pg 4 ncftp
 
On page 4 we use apt-get ti install some packages. However I get an error that ncftp can not be found.

I did however manually locate the package at Ubuntu and wget to my drive but I do not know what to do with it now.

I am so new at linux that I am still have a shine, how do you install a local package.

try a
apt-cache search ncftp

Hi rayit

I tried that. I even copied the file I retrieved with wget and moved it ti the apt/cache directory with the rest of them and still no luck.

maybe I just don't get it

You can install it like this:
Code:

dpkg -i ncftp
However, please compare your /etc/apt/sources.list with the one from the tutorial.
