    deleting repositories


    I am very new to kubuntu, and I was trying to install skype, through a repository. However, after going to adept packet manager and entering the address for the repository I am no longer able to launch adept packet manager or add remove program. I am prompted with a message that says to run apt-setup and apt-get update, however, I can't seem to make either of those work in the terminal. Does anyone know how I can remove the address of the repository that is screwing up my system?

    might be a daft question but you did use "sudo" apt-get update right?
    what was the error message?

    open sources.list file and put # sign before first line. OR paste contents of sources.list here.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
