After you enable Debian source don't forget to do a "Reload" or apt-get update
See here the recommended sources.list file.
If you enable Debian sources:
- please READ the Synaptic/apt-get prompts before answering "yes". Don't answer "yes" if the command tries to remove packages.
- consider pinning nvidia drivers (if you have nvidia card) that might break if you do a careless upgrade.
