Comment 4 for bug 952964

Can someone point us in the right direction of a fix, or a step by step of what Nate did. I tried adding an Oneiric source to Software Center, but I am not sure I know what I am doing there. I saw in a thread where you may need to reload apt to get new sources to work, but it didn't offer any commands to do that. when I try to get "help" from command, it says I need install apt! :-( Pretty frustrating. Any help would be appreciated.
