Ubuntu cd request on apt-get install

by

If you are asked to insert your ubuntu cdrom when installing something with apt-get, and you don’t want to, just do:

  1. gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. insert a ‘#’ in front of the first entry to comment it out (the one with the cdrom)
  3. sudo apt-get update

EDIT: Kevin Guertin suggested a graphical way of doing it (for the less geeky of us 🙂 ):

Go to System > Administration > Software Sources and uncheck the “Cdrom with Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon” checkbox on the “Ubuntu Software” tab.

    Well but then you assume that the X server is installed and running! Kidding 🙂 🙂 🙂 Thanks, post updated.
