Multimedia key problems! Can someone tell me where I am going wrong?
 
I'm trying to import the stupid multimedia key-ring. And alas it seems I am going in circles so can someone help me out? I did a Google search about it and I got to Mepis' website and they way the article there is laid out is not the way the Debian multimedia fella's site looks for me. Plus it's the most god-awful colors on the site too.

So I need to start fresh and try again. Can someone help? All I need to succesfully import and add the key! Here's my errors I am getting:

Try it with
Code:

apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
Press Y when asked, not the Enter key.
I found this info on the Debian Multimedia homepage.
Quote:

The first package to install is deb-multimedia-keyring.
Since Squeeze you can install this package with apt-get but you need to presse Y when the package ask what to do and do not press return.
An new “apt-get update” is also necessary.

Thanks! That worked!

Boy do I feel stupid now. I am almost 99% sure that the very first thing I did to begin with and apt said it could not find that package. But come to think of it, I guess I may have tried that with the old multimedia repository, cause it sure worked like a charm just now. Anyway, thanks. I can sleep well tonight. :)
