    Re: Update your Launchpad PPA repositories and apt keys

    Thanks for this! Works like a charm

    I think the process of adding repo's and keys is a bit of a complicated process if you don't know what is going on. Isn't there a way we could have a 'one-click-add' like you can with apt:// links to install software?

    Re: Update your Launchpad PPA repositories and apt keys

    Will this work in Kubuntu or is it specific to Gnome?

    ultrageeky, it's run through the terminal/konsole and it's a perl script.
    I think it will run fine on any debian-based/ubuntu operating system that uses ubuntu ppa archives (and of course, the packages required).

    are you sure it's this script? I don't use cat
    you're using blackgr's script probably.

    Try mine at the top of this topic:
