Hello,

On ubuntu, correct? Wait.... nevermind what I originally wanted to say. Can you post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zeitgeist-ppa-maverick.list and /etc/apt/sources.list files for me, using code tags? I will make this easy for you..... And next time, please use a more descriptive subject, instead of "I screwed up"; That doesn't tell us anything.

Cheers,

Josh

Copy and paste this into your terminal:


Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zeitgeist-ppa-maverick.list > lqhelp.txt; cat /etc/apt/sources.list >> lqhelp.txt
Then just attach lqhelp.txt to your reply.

Look at the last line of your file.... Should be the following:
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zeitgeist/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
Should fix it, but not fully certain. Let me know if it works for you.

Can you post the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zeitgeist-ppa-maverick.list like I asked before please? The error is in that file for sure.... That is partially my fault, I overlooked something that you have posted.

It looks like your second line was just missing an "htt" in front of it. It's an odd error, but I'm glad it's working now.
