John, taking the bull by the horns, I went to your second choice, as reading as much as I could cope with, I thought that as is was referring to 10.04, it might shorten the odds a bit.
Downloaded the file, dragged it onto the desktop and double clicked produced a window with the following in -

#!/bin/sh

gksudo -m "Enter your password to install EMC2" true
gpg --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key 8F374FEF
gpg -a --export 8F374FEF | sudo apt-key add -

sudo sh -c 'cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxcnc.list' <<EOF
deb www.linuxcnc.org/emc2 lucid base emc2.4-sim
deb-src www.linuxcnc.org/emc2 lucid base emc2.4-sim
EOF

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -o Apt::Install-Recommends=true install emc2-sim

Colour scheme is missing here, but as I can only guess what to do next, I though asking for more advice would be sensible.
My guess is to copy it into a terminal window, filling in my password as requested, but please advise.

You should be able to "run" the scrip without copying and pasting to a terminal window. You should be able to change to the directory (in a terminal window) that the scrip is in and type
./emc2-install-sim.sh
to run the script.

Thanks for the final step, John.
I now have EMC2.4.6 running on my house system, so I can code in the luxury of being 6 feet from an open fire,
and with a range of comestibles to hand.
There's a gale force wind outside blasting flurries of snow down the garden, and I'm a happy man. :)

Hi John,

I'm glad you got it sorted out. I'm trying to warm up my shop with my wood heater as we speak. The addition where all the machines are going will be well insulated and have central heat and air... and wood heat as a supplement.
