Oops. Sorry I clicked plain text from gmail.com but now that im back in
Evolution I can set it to plain text. I only sent from gmail.com because
I had just gotten into DEB, and hadn't had everything set up yet.

Plain Debian as in I got it from Debian.org its not a branch off as in

got this in reply I also noticed sudo apt-get works too as it did in the

christopher@COMPAQ:~$ sudo aptitude install  ttf-mscorefonts-installer
