Adding Ubuntu repository to Fuduntu


I decided to try out Fuduntu, then I realized I can't get download anything through the terminal using 'apt-get install'. Is it because Fuduntu isn't in existence anymore and the repositories are basically useless? If so how can I add Ubuntus repositories?

Fuduntu is not based on Ubuntu. It is based upon Fedora and, as such, will use yum rather than apt.

You cannot use any Ubuntu repositories for it at all.

Apparently it is discontinued.

That means 'no support'. So it would be better to shift to some other distro.

Here are easy instructions to try Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Another nice distribution that uses Ubuntu repos is Linux Mint.

Do not try to mix programs from different distros unless you are very experienced.
Firstly, as pointed out, they use different packaging systems.
Secondly, they name their packages differently and put library files in different places. One distro will put file A in package X, another will put it in package Y. One will have gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10, another gstreamer.0.10-plugins-good! You end up with what we call 'dependency hell'.

If you don't have a Linux (except Fuduntu), look at Mint Debian Edition or PCLinuxOS. They're both good and both rolling-release, like Fuduntu was.

I am sure you already got the Idea by previous post. But I just thought to emphasizing a bit more and tell you. It is not going to work

I did it and had a certain degree of sucess

I did it and had a certain degree of success but I did not use Ubuntu's repositories. I used fedora 17's.

so far I have had no issues with it. what will not work simply will not install.

If you are going to drag up an old thread, then please, at least, read the comments. This has been noted in multiple posts.

So, you're using a dead distro supplemented with software from an obsolete one. Where are you going to get any security updates from?
