…submitted by Ken… Here’s the actual question: How do I enable the Universe in <Ubuntu> Feisty using the command line? My graphics suck so I don’t have a gui.
Well, as long as Feisty still uses the same configuration that Edgy used (I’ll verify this later), and as long as you’re into using “
apt-get” (if you’re not you’re apt-screwed), then it’s easy. Just edit:
…and follow the instructions right in the file. You’ll simply uncomment (remove the hash mark at the beginning of) the lines that end in “
universe“. The next time you use
apt-get update you will have many more options available to you. Enjoy!
Or if you’re really adventurous, you could uncomment the lines that end in “
multiverse“. By the way, “Multiverse” is a great song by one of my all-time favorite bands, VoiVod. Now you *really* learned something today, didn’t you?
And while you’re in there, be sure to comment-out the line about the cdrom as a source. It’s one of the first lines in the file. You don’t want to be popping the cdrom in there ever time you want to add a package when it’s all available via the web, right?
