Re: Looking for Syntax

I am looking for specific "sudo" related syntax. Say I want to
install the file compression utility "rar." Now then, the "Apt get

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 rar

Error 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.
