Access and Synchronize packages through Apt-get and Synaptic

If you already dont know about, it is a great site to download the latest software, not many people know this but you can use getdeb's mirrors as repositories to sync your GetDeb packages with the update manager and Synaptic.

1. Open up a terminal (applications>accessories> Terminal) and run the following:

sudo echo "deb getdeb/" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list


deb getdeb/

If I were you I would ping each host to see which is closer and add that one

Save the file and exit.

3. Now run the following in the terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Now you should be able to install programs through the Synaptic package manager as well as apt.
