Is it now smooth?

Chisombole Kapulu (chisombole) said : #9

Now am able to get into the software centre. Thank you very much!

How can I get the cairo-dock without having to experience the same problem.

For installing cairo-dock on your system you no more need any extra repository source, because current stable versions are available in the standard Ubuntu repositories.

sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

should be enough.

Hi,

This is what am getting when I try the sudo command you suggested.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 cairo-dock-plug-ins : Depends: curl but it is not installable
                       Depends: libetpan15 (>= 1.0) but it is not
installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Should do it

Nothing is happening. After I type in the command it just goes back to the
command line.

Ok, there are still some minor weaknesses in your sources.list, but now it should work.

Try again

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

and copy/paste all output as done before.

sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins;

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily
unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another
process using it?

Apparently there currently is another package management process running.
Make sure that update-manager, synaptic package management and similar programs all are closed, and that you do not have apt-get or dpkg running in another terminal window.

Then try again

sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

It has finally installed with no errors. What remains is to launch the dock now. Thanks for the assistance.
