  • No problem Ronald. We all understand, as we have all been there. :) Like @Lawrence said, Raspbian doesn't use the pac-man command, it uses the apt-get for its package manager, so you don't need to install PAC-MAN. Commented Sep 14, 2013 at 13:47

Not quite.
For Raspbian, you should be using apt-get install <package name>
apt-get is the package manager for Raspbian, much like how pacman is the package manager for Arch Linux
