I like to install the Midnight Commander in the Live-CD version which I installed on a PC's hard disk.

Some how-tos say that this command should work:

sudo apt-get install mc

But not for me. When I try this, I get

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package x11vnc

I guess the reason are missing links in

/etc/apt/sources.list

But, which entries do I need?
