    Cannot install lrzsz package, please help

    hello, I have been trying to install lrzsz the supporting package for minicom. But when i search that on Package manager i dont see any package like, i mean there are no package like that.

    I tried this command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lrzsz
    but it say that i couldnt able to find that package. Does anybody know what is the problem. How will I solve this problem. I need this very soon.

    This is what i get
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package lrzsz is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package lrzsz has no installation candidate
    Thank you

    And thats what, when i enter this command, I get the above output. It is really annoying. I use 6.10 kubuntu Edgy.

    Thinking of to upgrading to Fesity. Had enough with edgy now is guess. It works fine on Fesity.
