I've been reading up on Automatix at Ubuntu forums. It sounds like the cats meow and as important as the Second Coming, I'm sure. But is it as good as ...

I use it and find it very good. To be honest it for the most part is a beginners tool, if you had added the correct repositories you could do the same in Synaptic. It is however very uselful. I believe it writes its owen sources.list over your own. This wasn't an issue for me as I had a default one but you may want to back yours up first. It certainly is a nice way to get the essentials in.

I'll check it out further. I have a few multiverse/universe repositories in my sources, so I may have to clean that up.
Thank you for being helpful people.

That didn't take long
Well I'll be. It installed as slick as a beavers rug. No problem with code. We'll see what happens when I run Automatix. It was easy to find as well. I did a search in Google 'automatix' and the first link was Ubuntu forums.

Have a problem
After Automatix did it's thing, I notice I can't uninstall anything that was installed. I want to get rid of bittornado and azureus but Automatix, Add/Remove and Synaptic says it's not installed, and therefore won't uninstall them.
Can I do that from the command prompt?

sudo apt-get remove --purge azureus"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

First download the Linux (RPM) package from limewire official site.
Then install the required Ubuntu packages :
sudo apt-get install fakeroot alien
fakeroot alien -d LimeWireLinux.rpm
sudo dpkg -i limewire-pro_4.10.0-1_i386.deb
If you want to make it easier on yourself, you can use Frostwire instead of Limewire. There is an Ubuntu package on their site :
