Please help...need to finish downloading a program for work project and can't locate this!!

You can run:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and add it there. If it is a PPA link you can use:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:address

obviously change 'ppa:address; for the actual PPA

Can you help with this problem?
