Most of the Debian desktop users probably want to activate repository. If you want to use it, add repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list, Instructions are here:

Make sure you add Etch repository:

Then you must download repository key and add it to APT keyring. If you don't do that APT will complain about missing public key. Here is what you need to do:

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 1F41B907 $ gpg --armor --export 1F41B907 > debian-multimedia.key $ su -c "apt-key add debian-multimedia.key"

or if you use sudo:

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 1F41B907 $ gpg --armor --export 1F41B907 | sudo apt-key add -

Next run command: # apt-get update

Now you should be able to install stuff from the repository.
