Are there any PPAs or .deb files I can download in order to get the Elementary applications Postler and Dexter in Ubuntu 10.04?

I have tried the postler-dev PPA but it does not have builds for 10.04.

have you given ppa:postler-dev/ppa a shot? – Kory Wnuk May 30 '11 at 20:17
Yes, and when I run apt-get update this is part of the output: W: Failed to fetch‌​kages.gz 404 Not Found – Thomas Boxley May 30 '11 at 20:29
Hmmm...that is the only one I am aware of. However, I will look around and let you know if I run across something. – Kory Wnuk May 30 '11 at 20:32
How about ppa:postler-dev/devel ? – Kory Wnuk May 30 '11 at 20:45

I'm going to answer my own question and say No. I haven't been able to find any PPAs or compatible .deb files for Dexter or Postler on Lucid.

Ran across the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lallenlowe/dexter-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dexter

Something else I have run across at

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementaryart/elementarydesktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install postler dexter

Not sure how will the elementary os stuff will work, as Jupiter is based on Ubuntu 10.10 and not 10.04.

Neither of those work either. Just W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found with different sources. Thanks anyways. – Thomas Boxley Jun 1 '11 at 2:02
I wish I could have been of greater assistance. – Kory Wnuk Jun 1 '11 at 22:09
It's fine. Thank you very much anyways. – Thomas Boxley Jun 1 '11 at 23:22
