    I did read the README, and I quote:



    Which sounds to me as if it doesn't install quodlibet itself, but rather those dependencies it requires. Either the README isn't clear, or ./setup.py isn't...

  14. [all variants] Re: Authentication problems with 3rd party repos

    I did this already. The key for Christophe Dumez appears under Software Sources, but I still get the "cannot be authenticated" warning. I was hoping someone else could try it to see if they also have...
