3rd Party Repository: GetDeb Apps

This repository is available for: Precise  Trusty  Vivid  Wily  Xenial 

Title: Latest open source and freeware applications - Apps

GetDeb is an unofficial project with the mission to provide the latest open source and freeware applications for the current Ubuntu Linux release, in an easy to install manner.

The GetDeb repository extends the official repositories by providing latest versions and new applications. Unlike the official packages, GetDeb packages do not have a predefined release schedule - new software versions are provided as they become available from their authors. There is a short and limited testing phase instead of a full testing cycle to ensure packaging quality, however it is less strict than Ubuntu's official requirements.


Daily Build: no

To setup the GetDeb Apps repositories:

wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu xenial-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

<p>I get this error message.</p> <p>$ echo &quot;deb <a href="http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu">http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu</a> lucid-getdeb apps&quot; &gt;&gt; /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list<br> bash: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list: Permission denied</p>

<p>@kolosh, sorry I should have mentioned that you either need to be root before running this or prefix the echo line with &#39;sudo&#39;.</p>

<p>I&#39;ve tried the puppes package and it didn&#39;t work. It installed and I can connect to the web UI, but the page is blank and I can&#39;t see the upnp device on both my windows-pc and my xbox.</p>

I'm not sure if you already fixed in meantime, but for other people who will end up on this page:

Editing the repositories requires root privileges.

So you have several options to execute this correctly, I'll put down 2 of them:

sudo bash -c "echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list"

sudo -i; echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list

DONT use:
sudo echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list

because that will fail, since only the first part will be executed as root but the append write (the part after >>) will be done as the current user, that's why I added the bash -c part, that will make sure the entire command will be executed as root

I hope someone finds it useful!
