    Sword and Sworcery installation error

    I've been messing around for a few days trying to install this game after buying it through Ubuntu One. I've tried to contact the developer, but I've not gotten a response yet. Maybe somone could point me in the right direction?

    This is what happens when I try to install the game, after adding the key and ppa:
    cerapter@Ancalagon:~$ sudo apt-get install swordandsworcery
    [sudo] password for cerapter:

    None of the suggestions seem to work. I've also tried to install the package swordandsorcery-bin, with the same result, although a different file size that time.

    I'm on 12.04 LTS, 64 bit version. I don't use Steam and I haven't bought the game through the Humble Indie Bundle.

    I've never seen that before.

    The PPA requires a user/pass, (I presume because the game is a pay game), so I can't try this myself, but my suggestion is to try going to the directory in a web browser, and downloading the file in the web browser, and see what it does.

    If you can download the .deb successfully, then just drop it in /var/cache/apt/archives, then try installing it again.

    ETA: It looks like both did the same thing, too, so download both files.

    I successfully installed the game in the end. I do not fully understand how. I can only guess this: the 19% that was downloaded on the first unsuccessful attempt, was not brought from the cache, but this was downloaded all over again which added to the total file size.

    It worked after I did all the cache and list clearings I could muster, then an update, and then try again. I might have failed to do this thoroughly earlier, as I was on a slow connection and my apt-get update would take a long time.
