Re: Add PPA Repositories to Debian

Re: Add PPA Repositories to Debian

^Oh yeah, forgot to mention that. you gotta edit the "=http" bit at the beginning of the line until V1 fixes the linkage.

Re: Add PPA Repositories to Debian

Rather than add some unknown person's repository to your sources-list, why not just go and grab the deb file for whatever it is you wanted? With the whole repo linked in there's nothing stopping them from adding their own version of some app you use, so that you innocently upgrade to it...

Re: Add PPA Repositories to Debian

I agree John, and do that all the time...

This is just a posting of a new method of doing it by someone who has contributed a lot to Debian, nothing more.

And perhaps a link for the next person(s) looking to add a PPA to Debian
