    hope that clarifies things.
    On Lucid and Maverick, users can use Firefox Stable https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+...firefox-stable and Thunderbird Stable https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+...derbird-stable

    Both had 9.0 since December...

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main'
    Thank you!
    Unfortunately, no, the repository is added, but no key is imported. Here's what I get when running 'apt-get update' on 11.04 64bit:
    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get update

    Hello, nanotube.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main'
    Good news and bad news (basically same result as reported by Mikewhatever):

    Good news first:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pro...la/mozilla/apt all main'
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ echo $?
    0
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
    The repository was successfully added to the file /etc/apt/sources.list
    Using Synaptic the Ubuntuzilla repository was queried successfully and Firefox 9.0.1, Thunderbird 9.0.1 and Seamonkey 2.6.1 were added to the list.
    Yet, a warning was displayed by Synaptic, too.

    Bad news second:
    The signature could not be verified because the public Ubuntuzilla key was missing.
    W: GPG error: http://downloads.sourceforge.net all Release: Die folgenden Signaturen konnten nicht überprüft werden, weil ihr öffentlicher Schlüssel nicht verfügbar ist: NO_PUBKEY CCC158AFC1289A29
    (The following signatures could not be verified because their public keys were unavailable: NO_PUBKEY CCC158AFC1289A29)

    Running the command
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29
    fixed the problem.

    Is there any particular reason for trying to replace the two commands which you give on the Sourceforge page and which still work fine:
    Code:
    echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29
    Oh, before I forget: the tests were done on: Ubuntu 10.04.3 Desktop 64-bit.

    Kind regards,
    Karl

    Hello, nanotube.

    Almost the same results for Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop 64-bit.
    I.e. your commandline fails to get the appropriate public key.
    Difference to Ubuntu 10.04:
    The commandline
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com CCC158AFC1289A29
    does not fix the public key problem. It will be downloaded and installed, but Synaptic keeps on complaining about it.

    Only be removing the downloaded public key and the repository entry and by running the old commands
    Code:
    echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pro...la/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29
    next, the problems could be fixed.

    Kind regards,
    Karl

    Hello, nanotube.

    Final report for Ubuntu 11.10 Desktop 32-bit:
    Basically, same problems as experienced before on Lucid and Natty.
    In the end only resorting to the old commands would achieve the goal without problems.

    Absolutely and ultimately final report for Ubuntu 11.10 Desktop 64-bit:
    Same problems as reported before.
    Using the 2 command lines found on your Sourceforge webpage: apt list updated, public key imported, Software Centre offers Ubuntuzilla software.
    Downloaded and installed Firefox 9.0.1 64-bit and using it right now.

    Kind regards,
    Karl

    Re: Ubuntuzilla testing: please help if you can :)

    Hi guys
    thanks for testing
    some doc i saw suggested that add-apt-repository may also automatically fetch the key, which would have been nice, to go from two commands to one.
    since it doesn't do that, then i suppose it doesn't really matter, other than the fact that add-apt-repository would be shorter and look nicer than the current echo line
    so i guess we'll just leave it well enough alone.

    yes the -stable repos are also good alternatives. they don't offer seamonkey though, but they do the job just fine if all you want is ff/tb, and you happen to be on lucid or maverick, and not on any of the other currently-supported releases. (and they don't use official mozilla builds, though that is probably irrelevant for most). i used to recommend those to people on 64bit systems.
