Where can I get the python-uno package?

Hello everybody,
I have a Debian 3.1 and decided to try the
new 2.0. I downloaded the .deb packages from and installed them using dpkg. Everything was installed (almost) without problems, except the Writer. This package requires another package named python-uno. However, I cannot find it anywhere; can you help?
Thanks very much in advance,

What don't you just use apt-get to get it? As root type:
apt-get install python-uno
You could also use synaptic if you prefer a GUI.

Just a note: openoffice 2.0 is now in the Debian repositories, so you can also get and install that using apt-get.

Sincerely, Jorgen

Hi Jorgen,
that was the very first thing I tried, but I got the following output:

#apt-get install python-uno
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package python-uno is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package python-uno has no installation candidate

Another question: could you please tell me what Debian repositories are? Normally, I use aptitude to manage the package installation, but when I let it update the package information, the packages are still available in version
1.1.something only. Maybe if you could tell me the destination
you know about, that would be great...
