Automatix
 
I keep getting errors when installing stuff form Automatix.

For example trying to install wine or even google earth and it says there is a problem: A pre based error has ocurred.

What would be cuaing these errors? All im trying to to do is install apps from Automatix.

I have Ubuntu ultimate installed 1.04 and i check for broken packages but nothing.

Is there something im not doing right?

I'm sorry this post doesn't solve your problem, but I just wanted to inform you that Automatix is not a very nice piece of software:

BTW, what makes you think your Automatix-problem is NVIDIA-related? Is there any error messages about NVIDIA?

Good luck finding the source of your problem! (most certainly Automatix itself), and again I'm sorry I couldn't present you a solution..

Agreed. I tried it once and dumped it.

Apt is more than enough for my needs, and a little googling will usually turn up a repository for any app I may want.

Your better off doing it the tried and true way Bigman.

Ive been reading its not all that great.

I like a one stop downlload area for all i need for Ubuntu.

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu and when i go into Automatix, i still get errors when trying to install Google earth and dvd ripper.

Did you enable all the repositories and try synaptic?

If it's not in Ubuntu's try this.
http://www.debianadmin.com/use-googl...in-debian.html

full instructions are there, and if you don't like vi as an editor, try gedit or nano.
