View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble adding a PPA

July 27th, 2009, 07:15 PM
I'm trying to add a PPA for KeePassX.

I'm following the instructions on Launchpad ("How do I use software from a PPA"):

Adding the PPA to Ubuntu

Step 1: Copy the first line from the apt sources.list entries section of the PPA overview page. For example:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/awn-testing/ubuntu jaunty main

Step 2: On your Ubuntu computer, open System > Administration > Software Sources.

Step 3: Click the Third Party Software tab.
Screen shot of the top tabs in the Software Sources app

Step 4: Click the Add button.

Step 5: Paste the line you copied in step 1 and click the Add Source button.

My problem is that the dialog box that appears when I perform Step 4 has the Add button greyed out - and as I can't find a way of changing this, I can't perform Step 5.

Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong? :confused:

Hi, I have created a script to
automatically add PPAs and their associated pubkeys (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7737482#post7737482). Hope it helps.
