Have you ever glanced over at someone else using Ubuntu 7.10 and
said to yourself “woah, they’ve got all the COOL stuff!” No? Er…
neither have I. But, if you would like to get some cool stuff, here’s
how you can enable extra repositories, like the non-free and Multiverse
First, you’ve got to open Synaptic, the package manager for Ubuntu. Go to System-> Administration-> Synaptic Package Manager. You’ll be prompted for your password.
Once Synaptic is open, go to Settings at the top and then Repositories.
