[ubuntu] Need help with a Thinkpad

I have tried using ~sudo apt-get install (package) instead of the Software Center and Synaptics, but no luck, can't find any packages that way either. I should mention my desktop was setup with 9.10 not long ago, it shares the same IC and everything is running smoothly on it, repositories included. That seems to rule out problems with my I (Hardware)
