    I cannot go v9.10 or later because too many changes torpedo my "tablet-pc" workings in various ways. I continue to get a complaint
    about a missing launchpad key [see elsewhere in this thread] without
    any resolution. It seems I'm cursed to have dents and scratches, rumbles
    and rattles in an otherwise useful Ubuntu deployment.

    Re: Update your Launchpad PPA repositories and apt keys

    I'm looking for a script which will check ppa address and keys and resolve the correct distribution available for your installation irrespective of which distribution is installed.

    For example: some ppas are only available as Karmic but you on Lucid. There is no real difference iin architecture if its just game etc.

    The official ubuntu upgrade utility changes all ppas to LUCID for eg, without bothering to check if they ppa has Lucid.
