    Re: Public key not available

    If you're that paranoid, maybe you shouldn't use PPAs to begin with...

    But really, each PPA has a link to its key on the Launchpad page (and if you don't trust that, then you really shouldn't use PPAs). All you have to do is click on the link, then right-click on the keyID link to save it to your computer. Then click the Add button on the Authentication tab of Software Sources, and select the downloaded file to add the key.

    The addition of keys for Launchpad PPAs is relatively new. I imagine that future releases of Ubuntu will include some sort of one-click support for downloading and installing PPA keys.

    OK, thanks for clarifying. I feel confident enough now

    Still don't really understand why it complains about the key all of a sudden, as I didn't change anything for at least a month.
