I am looking for specific "sudo" related syntax. Say I want to install the file compression utility "rar." Now then, the "Apt get install" doesn't seem to work with my new debian system. I have either forgotten the proper syntax, or something isn't working or is missing with this new distro of mine.
'apt-get' is one word with a dash in the middle, not two words. So you want:
sudo apt-get install rarError messages are the key to the problem. In this case you should have seen:
sudo: apt: command not found which tells you that there's no program called "apt".In future, if you're having a problem and you have an error message, it's helpful to post it.
