Yep, add contrib and non-free. See my sources.list above.
For Flash, install flashplugin-nonfree.

I got flash working ok.


can't get googleearth to work. I built it then ran the installer but it doesn't work. Now I have a menu entry that doesn't work. Can I clean this up and start over? My first deb package build and it fails, of course.  sad.gif

Just install lsb-core and libqtcore4 and run the installer again. dpkg won't automatically install dependencies like apt.
I don't know why clementine has projectm as a dependency. I would have thought it would be optional. You may be able to download it from testing or sid, install with dpkg -i then try again.

thanks sunrat. The Earth is up and rotating once again. For Clementine, when you say download it from sid, is there a web page I go to or can I add sid to my sources in synaptic?

abarbarian, I seem to know a lot of those, but that's probably a good thing.   hysterical.gif

I got Clementine. I ran the command from this page. http://wiki.debian.org/Clementine
QUOTE
apt-get -t squeeze-backports install clementine

I have no clue why it won't install thru Synaptic.

Two guesses - perhaps you did not update your sources after editing your sources.list. You need to do this in Synaptic, or apt-get update, after changing sources to update the local available packages list.
Also the -t option forces apt to use the repository specified in the command, in this case backports. Clementine is not available in the standard squeeze repos.
