During the upgrade from Ubuntu 10.0 to 10.10 many programs were disabled. I went to Software Sources and checked them. Are they enabled or do I have to do more?

Firefox PPA won't download information so I unchecked it.

i am not a expert

but if you are talking about ubuntuzilla and medibuntu
think they have not enabled maverick yet!

i looked at mubuntu and they go as hi as 10.4 now
so give them time

Many of the ppa's are still for Lucid, you may have to check each one to see if there is a Maverick repository. Ppas are unofficial, so it is up to the maintainer to add a maverick repository.

The reason the upgrade disables ppas, is so that unsupported and incompatible, applications and libraries don't interfere with the upgrade process.

Once you know that there are 10.10 ppa's available, possibly the easiest way to re-enable them is to install Ubuntu Tweak, then click on the source center on the left and answer yes when it asks you to Upgrade Third Party Sources.

I have Tweak, and have been checking. Thank you for telling me that is a way to enable.
