synaptic - how to insist on remote sources
Like the title says.
The Ubuntu 5.10 machine I'm trying to work out is connected via ADSL - whcih works fine now. I need to install some extra things, but don't have access to the CD's / DVD - they guy who installed it took them with him.
So I go to Synaptic, mark things to install - and it asks for the CD's / DVD. Great.
What to do? (keep in mind though, I'm not used to using Synaptic, or Ubuntu / Debian in general.)
