    Question System 76 Driver

    I have been trying to install the System 76 driver, however I cannot download it through the PPA.

    The command "sudo apt-add-repository ppa:system76-dev/stable" seems to work fine.

    You are about to add the following PPA to your system:

    More info:
    Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it

    gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpLbKbpw/secring.gpg' created
    gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpLbKbpw/pubring.gpg' created
    gpg: requesting key C8B7748B from hkp server
    gpg: /tmp/tmpLbKbpw/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
    gpg: key C8B7748B: public key "Launchpad PPA for System76 Development" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
    Then. the command "sudo apt-get update" yields:

    Err precise/main Sources 404 Not Found
    Err precise/main amd64 Packages 404 Not Found
    Err precise/main i386 Packages 404 Not Found
    Ign precise/main Translation-en_US
    Ign precise/main Translation-en
    W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
    W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
    W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones use instead.
    So when the command "sudo apt-get install system76-driver" is issued, the following is returned:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package system76-driver

    What to do, please?

    Start with this thread.

    Feel free to comment in it as well, but I don't think it matters to them that you prefer an LTS release.

    Did that sound bitter? Sorry...

    If you're on 12.04, you'll need to download the driver from
