  1. I tried it all, and the message I got after it tried to install all the debs from the last command was: "Processing was halted because there were too many errors." Not sure what to do anymore. Would it help if I posted my sources.list?
  2. Okay, first I tried that and it seemed it installed the necessary packages for GIMP. http://paste.linux-noob.com/index.php?query=2683 Then I accidentally pasted what you can see there into the terminal window and it took me to a Debian config that allowed me to make my system clock right, lol! Looks like my blunders worked in my favour that time. It also told me about how broken packages can hinder future installations. There are a lot of them I imagine. *sighs* Linux, I tried.

  3. I did the update before trying Opera. Same problem. Terminal didn't recognise "import" either, I'm afraid.

I've tried to install new apps, but it has resulted in disaster. App A needs dependency B, dependency B needs dependencies C, D, E, F, G, H, i, J, etc. I was told I needed to update my sources file, and I did. I added some repositories I found on the web like Skype's - yet when I tried "apt-get install skype" (or Opera as I had the repository for that in there) I was again reminded of missing dependencies.
