I am having some trouble and i need a kind/patient individual to assist me. I am new to the world of computers. When i got the computer i had trouble installing bitmessage so a friend suggested i alter the /etc/apt/sources.list. It worked and all was well (i was able to install and use bitmessage via terminal). So i tried to install openshot video editor via the synaptic package manager and that went great until i try to use it and nothing will happen(more on this later).So in my wisdom i assumed because the updates version was removed from the
/etc/apt/sources.list.that maybe i should edit it to the original state(i saved it before altering as my friend suggested). So i opened the
nano /etc/apt/sources.list. and copy/pasted it to the original text put in by the installer. After doing so i can no longer access the synaptic package manager and am getting the following message:
E:malformed line 5 in source list/etc/apt/sources.list (URI) E:the list of sources could not be read. go to the repositiory dialog to correct the problem E_cache->open()failed,please report
I have attached the original
/etc/apt/sources.list text by the installer and also the one my friend made for me. The openshot is installed but simply does nothing. I am not sure if i have saved the sources.list correctly or for that matter what is going on.
Thank you for your time, wisdom, and patience.
