@Rodrigo: I tried it, everything seemed ok during the update but it still doesn't work :( I restarted the computer, tried to update again(maybe I shouldn't?) and then I had this: unableto connect to packages medibuntu.org, some index files failed to download, they have been ignored or old ones used instead. Any idea ?
