There is the PPA pi-rho/dev, which has vim 7.4.401 packages, at 2014-09-02. (The current default version for trusty is 7.4.052) The version is available for precise and trusty, the build for utopic seems unavailable currently. Details on the versions from apt-cache: $ date Tue Sep 2 17:22:43 CEST 2014 $ apt-cache policy vim vim: Installed: ...

Yes. You can remove the PPA after you are done installing. However, you will no longer receive updates to software. PPAs are "software repositories". You get software from them. The software doesn't need it. Think of your program as a bottle of milk. The PPA is the store. When you buy the milk, the milk (nor you) no longer needs the store. You can (if you ...

Usually this error happens when you mis-type the apt command, which doesn't seem to be case here (if I believe you). Can you please login as su and then do the apt-get update? I know using the system as Super User is not a good thing to do but at lease for one time, you can give it a try. P.S. Is there a proxy on your network?

According to the Launchpad PPA Terms of Use, OSI or FSF approved licences are allowed and the MIT licence has both approvals. You can tell dh_make which licence to use: dh_make -c mit dh_make has a few licences inbuilt, for others you will have to manually edit the files later.

I would say a few things. First, I need to caution you against using the command su -- it is a bad practice that can only cause problems. When you need administrative privileges, you should prefix your normal commands with sudo. If you really need a root prompt, you can use sudo -i. Now I took a look at the x2go wiki page and they didn't intend for you ...

One method is to use Ubuntu Software Center. Open it and use the arrow down next to "installed". It will list (from bottom up) PPA's installed: When you click on a PPA (TLP as an example) it will list the software included in this PPA. A green 'tick' means the software is installed. If none are the PPA is unused.

You can also use synaptic package manager. Look at the buttons bottom-left corner. Choose "origin", you will see the list of PPAs on the left pane. But this also shows available package(s) (not installed). You just have to sort the packages by clicking the 'status' column (to see if the package is installed or not).

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. There's a requirement that there cannot be the same version of a package but with different contents in a given archive. What this means is that you can't tell Launchpad to rebuild a package for Trusty when it's built for Precise (in your own PPA), because the version is the same, but the final deb packages will be ...

If you would like to use the software lists just as described in the tutorial, all you have to do is change all instances of the word raring to trusty. First, open the /etc/apt/sources.list file in an open terminal with the following command: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list Add the following lines: deb http://packages.linuxdeepin.com/deepin trusty main ...

You have spaces in the repository name. It should be: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio
