Glad to see that you were able to post the output.

The code tag looks like the pound sign.

Click on the pound sign (# in the section above where you type your response) and when you do you will see this [code][code].
Put your mouse pointer in between those 2 code tags and than right click and paste.

-Open your terminal and type sudo and press enter.
-Type in your password and hit Enter.
-Than copy and paste in 273's command and hit enter. The terminal will open your sources.list and from there you should be able to use your arrow keys and arrow down to the line evo told you about in post #12.

I think I ought to point out, after reading another thread by the OP, that from the command line packages can be installed by using the following commands:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install <packagename>
The update command only needs to be run once per session but is good practice to make sure that your software sources are up to date. The package name can usually be fond using hte Ubuntu Packages Search website:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/
The Software Center isn't required to using Ubuntu and installing software it is just a snazzy front-end to the actual package management tools.
