    Re: Update error

    There should really be an easier way to do this from Launchpad. For example, they say:
    This repository is signed with B9F2A424372C883C411D917F5AFADBD4AA1C92B0 OpenPGP key. Follow these instructions if you want to install packages from this PPA.
    Is there an easy way to just copy and paste that string somewhere in Import under Software Sources and have it work? If not, there should be!

    And for record, "Follow these instructions" link is not very helpful. I was able to figure it out, but it's definitely more complicated than it needs to be!

    What you can do is click on the string, which will take you do a search results page. On that page are two links. Right click the first (under keyID) and save the link to your computer. Now go to the Authentication tab in Software Sources, click the Import Key File button, and select the file you just downloaded to import the key.

    And yes, it still seems like there should be an easier way to do this.

    Right, I figured out how to do it. It should just be easier, given that they give you the string (which i assume is a fingerprint). I submitted an idea on brainstorm to that effect: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/17692/

    Who ever wants this for Hardy. Just edit the script and change intrepid to hardy

    edit:
    You have to run this with sudo
    This is great, thank you!

    Can I attach this on a post over at http://www.kubuntuway.net ? I'm sure others would love this.

    Re: Update error

    trying to get the key for this PPA:

    Code:
    #Screen configs
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kirkland/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kirkland/ubuntu hardy main
    and the script runs fine - But doesn't seem to do anything...

    Code:
    martin@Willow ~ $ sudo ./launchpad-update
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    curl is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    cat: keyss: No such file or directory
    rm: cannot remove `keyss': No such file or directory

    Any problems?

    Have installed said package from the PPA but want to get rid of the error on update.

    do this. Search for ca-certificates.crt
    Code:
    sudo find / -name ca-certificates.crt
    and post the output
