After adding PPA source for "skippy-xd", the package still can not be found:
majo@think:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:landronimirc/skippy-xd [sudo] password for majo: You are about to add the following PPA to your system: Fullscreen composited task-switcher for X11 Skippy-XD is a program that provides Exposé-like features found on the Mac OS X operating system. It is a standalone application for providing a window picker with live previews (including live video) on Linux desktops that run an X server with compositing support. Thus it is not part of the window manager, and the compositing is not being used all the time. If you work with many windows, your desktop may begin to get cluttered. You can use Skippy-XD to quickly and conveniently find the right window that you are looking for. It allows you to press a hotkey and see miniature versions of all your active windows at once. To use Skippy-XD, you need Xfce (xfwm4) or a NetWM compliant window manager (LXDE, Openbox-based window managers, etc.). http://code.google.com/p/skippy-xd/ More info: https://launchpad.net/~landronimirc/+archive/skippy-xd Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp1q3041/secring.gpg' created gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp1q3041/pubring.gpg' created gpg: requesting key 23A187B2 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: /tmp/tmp1q3041/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created gpg: key 23A187B2: public key "Launchpad PPA for Landronimirc" imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1) OK majo@think:~$ sudo apt-get update ...

I am using ubuntu 13.04 with lubuntu-desktop additionally installed on my laptop. I get the same result on my netbook, where I have clean lubuntu 13.04 installed. Downloading the package manually and installing works just fine, though. So it is not a big deal. But I was just wondering why I could not get the PPA working right. Thanks in advance for any advices.
