6 Install Synaptic Package Manager And Configure Additional Repositories
like to install the applications I need with Synaptic Package Manager
instead of the installed Muon Manager, that's why I need to install that
before I can go on with the other packages. Open a terminal (Applications > System > Terminal)...
...and enter the following:
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Some other packages like the Adobe Reader are not available in the
standard Ubuntu repositories. The easiest way to make such packages
available to your system is to add the Medibuntu repository.
Again, open a terminal and edit /etc/apt/sources.list...
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
..., enable the precise partner and Ubuntu Extras
repositories (if they are not already enabled) and add the Mint repository:
[...] ## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from Canonical's ## 'partner' repository. ## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the ## respective vendors as a service to Ubuntu users. deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by third-party ## developers who want to ship their latest software. deb http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main deb-src http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ maya main upstream import
Then save the file.
To enable the Medibuntu repository, please do the following:
