Hi

You have incorrectly configured repository names. As an example, the gwibber-daily ppa url should be:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwibber-daily/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz

not

http://ppa.launchpad.net/user/ppa-gwibber-daily/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz

Please fix your repository URLs and everything should be ok.

Where do I type this correct configuration ? In the terminal?

You can correct the configuration by editing "/etc/apt/sources.list" directly, or in Synaptic using "Settings|Repositories|Other software"

Can you help with this problem?
