I am new to Linux and am trying to install a program with apt-get install that needs to use the Debian Unstable Repository. I tried adding ftp://packages.debian.org unstable (something to that effect - I don't recall the entire address) to the Synaptic Package Manager, but it doesn't seem to work. I also tried to add the FTP location to the repository file manually and it didn't work.
Any idea how I am supposed to use said repository?
