I suggest you to add my additional package repository to the Eeepc's
existing list. Enter a terminal or press Ctrl-Alt-T if you are in Easy

Open your sources.list file in a text editor such as nano or vi:
$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Type or paste the following line at the end of the file:
deb http://dominique.corbex/net/eeepc ./

Save the file. 

Then refresh the software list:
$ apt-get update

No enter the following commands and agree to all of its prompts in order
to install GnomeSword-2.3.6:
$ apt-get install gnomesword

or Bibletime-1.6.5:

$ apt-get install bibletime:

Please note I've only checked these packages by running the default
EeePC software under virtualization software (QEMU).
