Running Linpus Lite but Package Manager Apt-Get = ?


Ok here's the thing. My laptop came pre-installed with Linpus Lite. I followed the advanced hack (xfce-setting-show) so that a desktop menu would show when i pressed right click. I followed the instructions to the letter but it didn't work. I right click on my desktop and nothing happens. Also, when I do the yum command on the terminal, it says no such file or directory. I tried installing yum via rpm or the tarball but it always fails to install correctly.

but lo and behold, i have apt-get!
Iv read that Linpus Lite is based on Fedora and apt-get is a debian based package manager. is there a significant conflict here? im dying to download packages already but it might not work since those programs were generally intended for debian systems. can i install yum using apt-get? help, i don't know where to start!

Yes, if apt-get is on your system the repositories it is set to should contain the packages for your system.
