I am having trouble re-installing Create Launcher. I downloaded it two days ago but my Ubuntu was acting weird. Because I am new to Linux/Ubuntu, I un-installed it and re-installed it. I am trying to get Create Launcher back. I did the troubleshoot method of adding the deb line into the update manager under the other software tab but it comes up with an error.

If someone could give me a step by step way of reinstalling it, I would appreciate it.

What is Create Launcher's application ("official") name? – RolandiXor Aug 22 '12 at 4:57
Also, please be more specific. What is the error message? What do you mean by "ubuntu acting weird"? What line did you and where? What was the troubleshooting method you are referring to? Reinstalling itself rarely helps. – January Aug 22 '12 at 5:01
this is what I tried : Update Manager: Run update-manager, or invoke it from the software update icon at the top of the screen. b. Click "Settings...", and enter your password. c. Click "Other Software". d. Click "Add..." e. Paste the deb line into the dialog box. f. Click "Add Source". g. Click "Close". h. If prompted, click "Reload". Close Update Manager. – user84815 Aug 22 '12 at 5:26
Create Launcher is the official name under the Software Center – user84815 Aug 22 '12 at 5:28
And this is the error : W: GPG error: precise Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY E131728675254D99 – user84815 Aug 22 '12 at 5:31

The problem that you are experiencing is that the source of software that you have manually added is not trusted by default, unless you specifically import a key from a trusted source (usually That way, when you import software from an archive outside of you can be sure that this software has not been spoofed.

Please open a terminal and paste the following line:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver E131728675254D99

This command will import the key from and add it to your keyring. After that, either run the software update from GUI, or paste the following into your terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
