Removing Obsolete Repositories


A short while back, I was asking about using live wallpapers in LinuxMint 17. I got a reply which told me how to do it in Ubuntu, which base code is the same. I tried it. It didn't work... because apparently two of the repositories no longer exist.

So now, I'm getting failures on Update. Because the repositories do not exists, and I have no clue how to tell my system to stop checking for them.

Any ideas?

I would attach a screenshot but am apparently not getting the skill level I need to either capture or attach it...

Just use synaptic>settings>repositories and go from there as pretty much everything is self explanatory after that.
