Software sources

Postby gwaro » 2012-06-25 10:01

Hi. I did a fresh install of Debian wheezy. I would like to know which repos to add to my /etc/apt/sources.list.

Hello.

Well, if you don't know which repos to add, then you don't have to add anything.

By default, you have everything you need.
... or do I misinterpret the question?

You may post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list here if you wish.

I want to install additional packages (like vlc,gimp,firefox...been using Ubuntu and everything was 'direct') which i cant find in the default repos.
These are the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

Did you forget to apt-get update && apt-get upgrade?

Edit:
I was wrong, there are also security updates for testing/wheezy and your sources.list seems correct.

Edit1:
You may want to give us the result of:
Code: Select all
# apt-get install gimp

... so that we can see what's wrong.

If this is a desktop you will more than likely want something similar to this:
Code: Select all
# Stable
#deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
# Stable Sources
#deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

# Security Updates  http://www.debian.org/security/
#deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

# Please note: The debian-volatile project has been discontinued with the Debian "Squeeze" release.
# See http://lists.debian.org/debian-volatile-announce/2011/msg00000.html for details.
# Debian Volatile is now squeeze-updates

# Debian Stable Backports

You might also want the mozilla.debian.net for new iceweasel, and deb-multimedia.org for various codecs and plugins
See the mozilla.debian.net site for the appropriate sources.
Code: Select all
# Debian Mozilla team APT archive - http://mozilla.debian.net/

# To use this archive, you need to add the following entry in /etc/apt/sources.list

Some of these are for Debian Stable. Is it wise to use them for Debian Testing?

I believe craigevil may have assumed you were running stable.

For testing you need the testing repo and that's it.

Hi,

I was using Debian Squeeze yesterday and there was the software-properties-gtk where I was able to change the server mirror, able to configure automatic updates, etc

Today I'm using the Wheezy version with Gnome 3 and I cant find any similar package to do that, where is it ?

The link posted by emariz clearly shows the wheezy version of software-properties-gtk

Ok, I'm not making myself clear, what I want is a native wheezy version for the old and native software-properties-gtk, I don't want to install anything to change my software sources, mirrors, etc.

I don't think that directly edit the /etc/apt/source.list is the best way to accomplish it.
