I was trying to try out the new plasmoid to activate the orbiter but was unable to locate it. I had just run apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade to get the latest alpha. Making sure it was installed, I did a apt-get install lmce-activate-orbiter-plasmoid and it told me that it would require xx space and asked if it was OK. After doing this I was able to locate the lmce plasmoid (which works great BTW) in the options.
I got more curious and decided to run an aptitude update and aptitude dist-upgrade and found that some things were not installed using apt-get.
This is a raw 810 latest alpha build- I have not modified any files including the sources.list to change to reflect the sources no longer being at archive.ubuntu.
The wiki page clearly says use apt-get- anyone else experience the plasmoid (or anything else) not being installed but it was using aptitude?
