On page 18 of Make AVR Programming the line for setting up tool chane in linux does not work in Ubuntu. Use instead:
sudo apt-get install avrdude avrdude-doc binutils-avr avr-libc gcc-avr
that is, replace the word aptitude, in the original document with apt-get

EMPLOYEE0Thanks, Jacob! I noticed the same thing when I was going over some other errata submissions, and we're sorry about the mistake. It will be corrected in future printings. Another solution would be to sudo apt-get install aptitude before you run the command in the book.
