I tried to change the basic toolbar to cairo dock,a tutorial that i found told me to write in terminal gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.listso i write it and a window opened,i couled not find the text that told me(the tutorial i mean)so i closed the window,after that i keep taiking the same error
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
now whene i got in the winehq.list the text has gone and i take this error in update manager,my software center doesn't work and my terminal whenever i type sudo commands says
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
I only started using it about two weeks ago now though I've had fun this morning I tried to update with update manager but I got this message: Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Type 'main' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.'
I have installed and uninstalled Ubuntu four times now due to various errors. Right now I am getting error messages anytime I try to use the update or package manager and I get the same message from both:
E: Malformed line 54 in source list/etc/apt/sources.list (URI parse) E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E:_cache->open () failed, please report.
Having a bugger of a time trying to update after adding a ppa.?

All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.
In a typical sources.list in a Debian-based distro, I see a line that begins with "deb," and right below it, the same repo preceded by "deb-src." I can figure out that that means "Debian source," but what's the difference between a "deb" and a "deb-src"?
My current sources.list has almost all the deb-src lines removed; I believe I did that at some point because Synaptic was giving me error messages over there being too many entries in my sources.list, and I must have thought the deb-src lines were redundant. I assume I was wrong, eh? The deb-src lines must be there for a reason. I might not have been certain the error messages were due to having too many sources, either; maybe that was only my guess.
In my netbook /etc/apt/sources.list contains the cdrom asdeb cdrom:[Ubuntu ....]/hardy main restrictedIf I keep the iso file in /ubuntu and then want it to be refreshed during #/etc/apt/apt-get updatehow must I motify /etc/apt/sources.list
This error comes from the update manager, but I can not see duplicate entries in the software sources. Is there a program that removes duplicate sources? If not how do I find the duplicate entries.

In my sources.list all I can see is online addresses but there is another directory in my pc which has all the sofwares but I don't know how to add its address to sources.list. I need to know the format of how to add it.
I just upgraded from Debian 8.1 stable to testing and finally to unstable, looking for latest software.However, I cannot find sources for security or software updates, the only repository that works from me is

I tried using sarge release for debian and I don't know what sources.list to use because in all the generators I can only choose Lenny, Sid, Squeeze or Etch release. What release should I use with Sarge? Or where do I get sources.list especially for it?
I have created a custom debian netinst USB stick. It has the default UK repositories in the sources list, but people in the US also need to use the stick from time-to-time.
Would it be a bad idea to mix US and UK repositories in the sources.list? Would Debian be clever enough to pick up the best repo depending on where the user is using the OS from? Or would I need to be a bit clever and create some sort of script to deal with this. (I am avoiding non-free/experimental software).
