I have some issues downloading Slidewall.

I have entered the correct terminal commands, and have checked them several times to be sure, but when I actually try to install the program, I always get this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package slidewall

Is there any way for me to install it successfully?

The package slidewall is only available using the extra repository (or ppa), and only on precise. Installation method:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 3E5C1192
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main" >> \
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/extras.list'
sudo apt-get install slidewall

Sources:

http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/extras/precise/main/base/slidewall http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/extras?dist=precise

What Commands did you use?

This is what i used

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fioan89/slidewall 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install slidewall

If that does not work , it might be a 13.10 issue.
