    my recommended breezy sources.list


    This is the source.list which I recommend for the average desktop user running breezy. I'm advising this as a forum user and not as a staff member.

    The average desktop user has no ppc or amd64. So this sources.list isn't intended for those architectures. For people who have amd64 see this post :

    It can't hurt to include the src repos in case you might need them later. If you are on a slow internet connection I would advise to remove them.

    If you need BOINC for SETI @ Home please search the forums.

    Not all of these repositories are official. Also using this sources.list is your own risk. That being said here it is :

    deb breezy main restricted
    deb-src breezy main restricted
    ## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
    ## distribution.
    deb breezy-updates main restricted
    deb-src breezy-updates main restricted
    ## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
    ## repository.
    ## N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu
    ## team, and may not be under a free licence. Please satisfy yourself as to
    ## your rights to use the software. Also, please note that software in
    ## universe WILL NOT receive any review or updates from the Ubuntu security
    ## team
    deb breezy universe multiverse
    deb-src breezy universe multiverse
    ## Security Updates
    deb breezy-security main restricted
    deb-src breezy-security main restricted
    deb breezy-security universe multiverse
    deb-src breezy-security universe multiverse
    ## official backports
    deb breezy-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    # If you get errors about missing keys follow these command's :
    # gpg --keyserver --recv 33BAC1B3
    # gpg --export --armor 33BAC1B3 | sudo apt-key add -
    # Cipherfunk multimedia packages (packages, GPG key: 33BAC1B3)
    deb breezy main
    ## plf primary repo
    ## http 100mbit/s mirror provided thanks to OVH
    deb breezy free non-free
    deb-src breezy free non-free
    ## plf mirror. use if primary repo is offline
    ## FTP mirror from (french ISP)
    ## deb breezy free non-free
    ## deb-src breezy free non-free
    ## Use the following repos ONLY if you need them.
    ## To use one remove the "##"  from the line that starts with "## deb".
    ## official wine apt repository
    ##deb breezy main
    ##deb-src breezy main
    ## opera web browser
    ## deb etch non-free
    ## Oo2 final - you can optionally use this one until OOo2 final arrives in backports
    ## deb ./
    ## skype
    ## deb stable non-free
    To use this sources.list replace your sources.list with this one using your favorite editor do the following command in the terminal (without the $):
    $sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Then do this command to take the new sources.list into effect do the following command in the terminal (without the $) :
    $sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade
    When a repository in this list has a GPG key, you may need to add that to the APT trusted keys. You can do this with the following commands (replace KEY with the key ID)
          gpg --keyserver --recv KEY
          gpg --export --armor KEY | sudo apt-key add -
    In the end users can and should make their own informed decision about what they put in their sources.list. Here are some links to get you started :

    information about codecs : (to install w32codecs just do : sudo apt-get install w32codecs)

    Information about plf :

    Information about backports :

    You can also generate a sources.list here :

    If you want to upgrade to breezy first read these :

    which sources.list do you use for your breezy desktop ?

    information about how to install software in Ubuntu :

    You can discuss my sources.list here :

    edit :
    unstickied. I'm not running breezy anymore as well as most Ubuntu users. IMHO you should upgrade to Dapper if you want to use a sources.list recommended by me.
