Getting started with CNR

Open Terminal and type



gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and add these line at the bottom of the Notepad



deb gutsy-extra main restricted
deb-src gutsy-extra main restricted

Note: We recommend to uncheck the Cdrom with Ubuntu 7.10 ‘Gutsy Gibbon’ entry in the “Ubuntu Software” tab.

Now type the following ; –



sudo apt-get update

If you get an error about a public key for the CNR repositories, ignore it and install the CNR client, from the command prompt with:



sudo apt-get install cnr-client

Once installed, you can activate the CNR client from System Tools -> CNR and let the client synchronize with the website.

    Oops! can’t get it working. Got the error. But when i tried to install the client, it said ‘can’t find’ the package. 😦

    Try to uncheck the CD Rom option Under Software Sources 😉 That will solve the problem 🙂

  3. Buzz Says:

    FWIW, I am having a similar issue, and unchecking the CDROM does not work. However, after scanning their website, it appears that CNR does not support 64-bit architecture. This is probably why it doesn’t come up up in apt.
