Thumbs down Installing Automatix2 howto formatting problem for new users

On page
http://www.howtoforge.com/automatix_ubuntu_p2?
the "Installing Popular Applications On Your Ubuntu Desktop With Automatix2 - Page 2" there is a problem for novice users:

The following:
Code:
echo "deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt edgy main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
wget http://www.getautomatix.com/apt/key.gpg.asc
gpg --import key.gpg.asc
gpg --export --armor 521A9C7C | sudo apt-key add -
apparently has a line break before the /etc/apt/sources/.list. I entered the first line, and then hit enter. This was apparently wrong, because "/etc/apt/sources.list" apparently has no meaning as a linux command. I hope there was no damage done. I figured that I needed to enter both lines on one line and did it again.

Altering the instructions to indicate the line break, or removing the line break would solve this problem.

It's in fact shown in one line in the tutorial. I guess your screen resolution is too low to show it in one line?

It seems you're right. The html source has no line break till the end of that line. Changes the font size confirms what you're saying.

Still, the directions weren't foolproof. I showed how to screw it up

Just copy and paste the commands. Then there will be no linebreak.
