I have just added the Handbrake PPA to my Ubuntu system using apt-add-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases as root. I've then run apt-get update but whenever I run this I get the following line in the output:

Ign lucid/main Translation-en_GB

I assume that this means that this URL is being ignored for some reason. When I try and run apt-get install handbrake it tells me that there is nowhere to install it from.

What am I doing wrong?

try sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk – doug Apr 3 '12 at 21:03
I cannot believe that it was that simple - doh! Actually, a serious question: the list of packages on the PPA page ( just says handbrake - where am I meant to find out that it is handbrake-gtk? – robintw Apr 3 '12 at 21:05
Did you install the package using apt-get update && apt-get install handbrake? – Axel Apr 3 '12 at 21:29
From that page you'd click on the View package detailslink, then expand the dropdowns to see the individual package names – doug Apr 13 '12 at 14:17

Ign lucid/main Translation-en_GB

is an attempt to find localization packages from the PPA for your locale. There is no en_GB localization available in this PPA so it's ignored.

The PPA itself should not be ignored and be listed some where else in apt-get update output.
