So I'm trying to install nuvola player on my laptop running ubuntu 13.10.

I follow the instructions on their website. Pretty standard, add the repo, apt-get update, and then install. However, no matter how many times I add the PPA ubuntu can't find the package. These are the commands I run.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nuvola-player-builders/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nuvolaplayer

I get a "unable to locate package nuvolaplayer" message.

I know that is needs a new maintainer, but the ppa should still be active right?

anyway, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Packages for Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) are available only in the Nuvola Player Unstable Builds PPA. I haven't tested any version of Nuvola Player on Ubuntu 13.10, so I don't dare to put "stable" label on them.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nuvola-player-builders/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nuvolaplayer

I believe nuvola player is no longer supported, had the same trouble getting from the repository. You can download the source and install manually from here. Hopefully will get pick up again soon :)
