I'm not sure what to change yet. I have to do some searching.

Ok. I found a stock Ubuntu 11.10 /etc/apt/sources.list

https://gist.github.com/1724112

Try that one after backing up your old one first and see if error goes away. The Tor Browser PPA's,Inundator and others you added I am not sure how they are supposed to read or be in order. That was why I mentioned earlier,

Quote:
I have a problem though with Ubuntu users adding private PPA's willy nilly and then wondering why their system broke.
So don't take offence. I am not a Ubuntu guru since I prefer Debian instead. Maybe a Ubuntu user here will point out what errors you have with the extra ppa's you added to /etc/apt/sources.list in Ubuntu 11.10. At least the stock one I posted the link to should get you out of trouble for now.

Also. After using the stock Ubuntu 11.10 /etc/apt/sources.list

And doing a successful apt-get update.

You can add your 3rd party ppa's one at a time.

Do another apt-get update. If no problems. Add another one, one by one.

apt-get update after each new ppa entry.

Till you get the error. Then you will know which ppa is the broken one. Remove it. Then you should be good to go.

Lightbulb again, thanks

Sorry about that ugly post and thanks for the help. I guess as far as the PPA's, I should have mentioned that the original owner of this laptop rents from me and couldn't pay his bill but had a 4 month old Sony(not a fan) Laptop that he :-/ Dual-booted with Back|track...? the Dual-Boot is not my taste, % definitely not w/a live OS like BT? I saw both OS's run great. ...then he did a full HD install of Blackbuntu!! That must be the source of the PPA's because I had to look up what you meant when you used the term, when I installed from an official Ubuntu CD 11.04 it must have copied some files instead of overwriting the whole disk, sound right?. So,in a few months this HD has been messed with more than an Irish Alter boy. That background would have probably saved you time and confusion i see now. I am sorry if it did and I really appreciate your help. I'm open to any suggestions about other distro's, got nothing to loose and like to learn. Def not sold on Ubuntu but I can't judge them cause at my level any "issue" is usually just my own screw-up. take care and thanks to all for being patient and helpful. k

EDIT: The HD install I did was 11.10 not 11.04 like I stated above

Since You are used to Ubuntu based distros already.

I've heard real good things about SolusOS On Mepis forums.

Quote:
SolusOS is a beginner-friendly desktop Linux distribution based on the latest stable release of Debian GNU/Linux. It features the GNOME 2 desktop, a good selection of default applications for everyday tasks, updated software applications from Debian "backports" and the project's own repositories, a complete set of multimedia plugins, a custom GNOME menu, and an intuitive graphical installer.
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=solusos

You will be running Debian though instead of Ubuntu if you install it. So think Debian.

Thumbs up distro suggestion

sounds like a great idea. I love the Gnome DT and do not like the new Unity at all. The one concern I have is that I have read that Gnome 2 is being phased out as it replaces Gnome 3. I probably have no idea what I am talking about but since I plan on giving your suggestion a try. I care about stability and functionality most, don't care about a "pretty" GUI. I'll let you know how I make out and if all goes well what I think of it.
