*Software-center …. Choose an Application ….

I do NOT understand what application I should use?

Please Help

All I wish to do is to install SuperOS 10.10 on to Ubuntu10.10

How is this done?
any help would great fully received

Sorry to ask again, I am new to this (Ubuntu) and linux.

Would like to Upgrade to Super (Ubuntu) OS 10.10

Please could you kindly let me know how this is done...In detail....as I have being trying to do this since I started with Ubuntu 09.04

Was able to download a copy of Super OS 10.10 from a torrent site and put on DVD, I think I have the wrong version, it tries to install via " Wine" so
I think it's version for "Windows" I an assuming that I should have a 32bit version.

History:-

I was able to install 09.04 from a CD and I have replaced the old HD for a new larger one before installation.

*Installed* on Dell Dimension 2400 with 80GB HD & 500MB Ram, first stalled was Ubuntu 9.04 since then it has been upgraded to each time there has been an upgrade,* now using Ubuntu 10.10 (which has worked much better than earlier versions which crashed a lot) Ubuntu 10.10* has NEVER crash.

Thanks

Richard

Did you read the "Adding the repository" section on the page you linked to?

Try:
Code:
wget http://hacktolive.org/files/Super_OS_repo_0.3.2.deb
sudo dpkg -i Super_OS_repo_0.3.2.deb
Cheers,

Evo2.

If the Super_OS_repo package installed correctly then, I guess the SuperOS packages should be available through your package manager.

Cheers,

Nick.

Still no luck !

Found and ran programs in packet manager.

It installed some of the prog's but keep asking for the Ubuntu Disk 10.10 which I do not have.

I did have a disk with Ubuntu 10.10 on for PC Pro Mag. but it did not like this.

I was trying in install the the shorten download for Super OS that I have downloaded. it's called part or bits I think.

Did you run "apt-get update" or whatever the equivalent is with your package manager.

If you don't want to be asked to insert the Ubuntu CD you should remove the corresponding line from you /etc/apt/sources.list file (or file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory).

No. I did not know that I had to do this! I will try this in Terminal? But I am not sure if this will work not knowing the correct Code!

richard@richard-desktop:~$ apt-get update
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

Could not find this in /etc/apt/sources

"/etc/apt/sources.list", not "/etc/apt/sources".

The error message says "are you root?". That means you need to use "sudo".

Thanks Evo2,

Sorry I am not sure what that means "sudo"

Is this "sudo" used in terminal, and do I go about solving my problem?

Hi,

it seems you are a little bit greener than I at first thought. I suggest you spend a little time reading some
documentation. For example: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

Also, I think that unless you have a burning need for something in "Super OS" you may do well to stick with
standard Ubuntu for a little while. Spend some time getting to know the system.

Cheers,

Evo2.

Thanks, Yes Very Green......Although I have had Ubuntu for 2 years I do not spend much time finding out how it can be use (I would like to very much, but I have a wife ! who does not like me using it "ALL" the time !)

Thanks for your help though.

I will try to read what you have said

Is there a Book that I can READ, them I am NOT on the computer ALL the time.....

Thanks Again

Richard

There are many books. "The Rute Book" is good one: http://rute.2038bug.com/rute.html.gz

You may also find one of the Ubuntu specific books helpful. For example:
http://www.amazon.com/s/url=search-a...eywords=ubuntu

Cheers,
