Adding repositeries to Ubuntu

I have started using ubuntu recently, this was the first thing i learned i.e adding Repositories:

Repositories are nothing but free software divided into 4 categories :
Main
(officially supported software), Restricted (supported software that is not available under a completely free license), Universe (community-maintained, i.e. not officially supported software) and Multiverse (software that is "not free").

Open a terminal and write

sudo /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper universe multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper universe multiverse

Add these two line to your source.list and save the changes.

This Will add allmost everything you need.

Enjoy the software,This will be helpfull for newbees like me.
