Someone sent me a zipped file so I need to install unzip to read it. Synaptic failed to find the package, but when I went to the Debian site and looked under etch, I found it straight away in the utilities section. I was able to download and install it using dpkg -i. The strange thing is that the mirror I downloaded it from is in my /etc/apt/sources.lst. So why couldn't synaptic find this package?
