apt-get for xchat


Hey all. I got a new notebook recently. It is actually a netbook - a Lenovo S10. It's a nice little computer, and I have installed Ubuntu onto it, but I am having a couple of issues with it. The first is that I am trying to install xchat, and I am unable to. When I do:
Code:
sudo apt-get install xchat
I get that the package could not be found. Is it called something different now?

The second issue that I am having is when I go to shut down the computer. I select shutdown from the menu, but it only logs me out, and my login screen comes back on. Right now I am forced to do "sudo init 0" through the terminal to get the computer to shut down.

Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing these issues? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I just tried a couple other things through apt-get, and I get "This package could not be found" for Thunderbird, Wine, Xchat, my adobe plugins. Maybe I am not communicating with the apt server? I am at a serious loss. Thanks again for any info.

Ok, so I got apt-get working by running updates. So that is all set. But I am still having issues with the shutdown option. It won't shutdown, or restart. It still only logs me off. I have to use init commands to shutdown or restart. Does anyone know what I can do? Thanks in advance.

I am talking about in the far right upper corner. You have the switch users or shutdown to the right of the date and time. If I select "Shut down" or "Restart" from this menu, it only logs me out. It will not turn the computer off, or cause it to reboot. The only way that I am able to shut the computer down or restart the computer is if I use init commands in the terminal. I am, however able to hibernate and suspend the computer through that menu. It is really strange.
