im following instructions on beryl wiki
see here

and i get this terminal error
kamikaze@kamikaze-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
E: Type 'wget' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

would this have anything to do with my school's proxy?

Possibly... Have you tried from another connection? It could be that the repository was down or that there is an error in your /etc/apt/sources.list

Can you post the contents of that file and we can have a look. It might also be worth running through the steps again. I've had similar problems when I forgot to add the key.

It looks like you added a line to your sources.list that you were instead supposed to run.

1) Add only the line starting "deb" to your sources.list
2) Run the wget command (this downloads a "signature" for the new repository you added to sources.list so that when apt/aptitude tries to get files from here, it knows it's a "trusted source")
3) Continue with the guide, and you'll be in wobbly window heaven soon!

Edit: You were definitely barking up the right tree Audio, sorry to snipe your answer :)

That was the giveaway that I missed.. :?

No problem. I think even I would have spotted that one had the OP posted the file. :lol:
