It IS in the repositories. I demonstrated that in my reply at 4.50 pm earlier today. The enquirer seemed not to notice.

It happens... No apology needed, but thanks anyway. The emphasis was for the benefit of the enquirer: sorry in return if you thought I was sniping at you.

As previously noted by other posters, the problem is probably the repository package locations as they are often changed/moved. If using a 'Fresh' Raspbian Image you need to update the package lists

sudo apt-get update

Once this is done the current repo paths and lists will be updated then its just

sudo apt-get install stella

To run stella from Console/Terminal just Type: stella

Stella can also be Compiled from Source Code yourself if you so wish by downloading it from the Stella Website

Hi Welshy

Stange, it worked when I tried it today, maybe was some form of a glitch.

Could be it was being moved/altered in the Repos when you tired previously so wasn't accessible.
