#So apt cannot help me get newer than 0.8.1 so I download them manually from webpage links choosing mirror of

http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gnash/gnash_0.8.2-0ubuntu3_i386.deb

and then when I have all 3 debs I want proceed to install them as follows:
dpkg --install *gnash*

Can you post your sources.list?

I suspect you're missing an entry for the "universe" section of Intrepid.

GaryW (gnubyexample) said : #2

Have now added a suitable universe entry which you correctly suggested I was missing.

: #useri@1i14z512(~) ;cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intrepid-universe-mirrorservice.list
deb http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid universe
#deb http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates universe
#updates are handled in the main sources.list file

Thought my upgrade had finished but now I have added universe correctly another 97 packages are being moved up from Gutsy to Intrepid. Looks like most of them are okay with just the occassional 404:

#Most of those 404 are probably minor name changes or moves into 'main' from 'universe'
#One thing i will sort out is now that libgnome-desktop-2-7 is in 'main' I probably do not need libgnome-desktop-2 from 'universe'

Thanks Alan Pope, that solved my question.
