I'm a very new ubuntu user. I had someone install everything for me, including GIMP but since my last update it has simply vanished.
I have found some help on the subject but all tell me to install packages and I don't know how to do that.
Whenever I try to run any of these commands I get some response like this:
N: Ignoring file 'matthaeus123-mrw-gimp-svn-oneiric.list.save.1' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
When I type GIMP into Terminal, I get:
The program 'gimp' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install gimp
So I try the
apt-get and this is what comes after:
E: Invalid operation gimp
Should I reinstall the whole system? Anyone can help please? :(
Ok I have deleted the file (yay!). I got the following errors:
Err http://ppa.launchpad.net oneiric/main Sources 404 Not Found Err http://ppa.launchpad.net oneiric/main i386 Packages 404 Not Found Err http://ppa.launchpad.net oneiric/main Sources 404 Not Found Err http://ppa.launchpad.net oneiric/main i386 Packages 404 Not Found

Then when I try to run apt-get on GIMP I get:
