I wanted to install everpad found in ppa ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa as written in

Adding repo seems succesful:

   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
   Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-    keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring  /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver --recv 01E7E3EDE399A2252D12CD719A29122E9C8631BA
   gpg: requesting key 9C8631BA from hkp server 
   gpg: key 9C8631BA: "Launchpad PPA for nvbn" not changed
   gpg: Total number processed: 1
   gpg:              unchanged: 1

But trying to install fails:

sudo apt-get install everpad
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package everpad

Is this a problem with the ppa or am I doing something wrong. Any steps I could take to get clues on what might be going wrong? Thanks

everpad is not available for ubuntu 10 ie. no package for lucid is available in the repository – user115044 Dec 16 '12 at 17:21
  1. You have to add the PPA [ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa]
  2. Then update your repository list [sudo apt-get update]
  3. Then install the package. [sudo apt-get install everpad]

You skipped number 2. It is worth noting that the package is only available for 12.10, 12.04 and 11.10.

+1 ok, thanks for the update ! – bragboy Oct 23 '12 at 10:09
@Uri, I am using Lubuntu 12.10, I installed everpad, but I am not able to sync. Could Lubuntu be an issue? – Ankit Jan 13 '13 at 14:52
