How to add an apt repositry


I have found a repositry that I wish to add to apt.sources yet I can't figure our the syntax. could someone give me a hand.

The repositry is "http://mip-lab4.ecn.purdue.edu/~rimbert/ubuntu/"

Please dont laugh, I have been told by my wife that I have to cook more, this seems like a good way to look like I am being keen.

Cheers in advance.

use synaptic package manager in your system menu i believe. There is a dialog wizzard for it.

you could also edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and add it.

I have tried both of those methods, I got error messages. Unfortunately I am at work at the moment so can't publish them. I will do it when I get home.

Cheers
