As far as my experience has gone since asking the question the simplest answer is: you just add a new PPA and let it update the package(s). The program settings stay untouched as per the usual update (because it is basically the usual update - the only thing that changes is the new source of the package(s)).

All of what you did is just right. But you miss to do one important thing. sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test And manually removed the PPA file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d as well as the keyring. Now before doing sudo apt-get upgrade you should make sudo apt-get update ...

You'll have to install the JDK manually if you want to pin the version. This is a pretty good guide for doing just that. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-manually-install-oracle-java-on-a-debian-or-ubuntu-vps Keep in mind no updates, so you'll have to upgrade the java version yourself for security updates and such.

The first command will only disable the PPA, not actually remove and install the original packages from Ubuntu repository: sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test So you'll need to enable the Repository one more time, go to Software Center > Edit menu > Sources, and run ppa-purge first. sudo ppa-purge ...

I'm the Flightgear dev. Thanks for letting me know. A rebuild of the package is happening, which should build it against the latest libraries in Vivid. The fixes package should be available in a hour or two.

Install libpcl1, it's in the Ubuntu repositories: sudo apt-get install libpcl1 Or as @Fabby said, compile your own version: sudo apt-get install git cd git clone git@github.com:PointCloudLibrary/pcl.git cd pcl mkdir build cd build cmake .. Note the missing development libraries, eg: -- checking for module 'eigen3' -- package 'eigen3' not found -- ...

Because for your version of Ubuntu this library does not exist in this PPA. To solve this, you need to build from source instead.

There is no such thing as tor 0.2.7.5. What you read about is Tor Launcher 0.2.7.5 which I suspect is a different thing that tor itself. You can have (in decreasing order of stability) the following build: the latest stable which 0.2.5.12.1 the latest experimental build which is 0.2.6.7.1 the latest dev build 0.2.7.1-alpha-dev-20150518T200057Z-1 none of ...

TL;DR Download the latest version here and compile your own version. Currently there is no PPA for Ubuntu 12.04 with the version 1.3.4e/1.3.5. Compile your own version It is possible that you need some development libraries. If so, drop me a comment. cd wget ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/source/proftpd-1.3.4e.tar.gz tar xf proftpd-1.3.4e.tar.gz cd ...

Can't comment on the previous answer (lack of rep), but to add on to Kam's answer above, you can download the notify-osd .deb file from here, for me I just installed the daily one. Run sudo dpkg -i filename.deb and you'll find that it'll immediately work with your existing NotifyOSDConfig installed. This will "downgrade" notify-osd (as shown in output), and ...

You can walk through Launchpad's instructions on generating and importing your key again to do so with a fresh key. Your key is stored in the .gnupg subdirectory of your home directory.

I'm using the 14.10 package, and it works out of the box, however, you have to use use the --force option to install it, and you must bloacklist notify-osd in synaptic (prevent future updates) or it's gonna reinstall the official package - untill the ppa is updated for vivid that is. Also, apt-get dist-upgrade does not upgrade the distribution. It's just ...

Use ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases instead. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases

The reason you're getting that error is because the debian/source/format file says that this is a 3.0 (native) package. As a bit of background info, the debian/source/format file describes the format of the package. There are three formats available: 1.0: Specifies that the debian folder and any changes that need to be made to other files in the upstream ...

For whatever reason, there is a 10.04 PPA in your sources. Look closely at the erring URL: http://ppa.launchpad.net/kurento/kurento/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages lucid is 10.04. It's possible you have two entries of that PPA, one for 14.04, which you added just now, and one for 10.04, probably a hangover of some upgrade. Do grep lucid ...

Everything is good, you can ignore the problem, that's a bug. Your command has caused no harm. The "problem" was this, and that's ok in your case: softwareproperties.ppa.PPAException: 'Error reading https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~team-xmbc: Not Found' in: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 119, in ...

I had the same issue with few applications, with skype being one of them, these depend on external packages or library files that need to be installed manually. To fix the issue i used : sudo dpkg -i skype.deb And then after being prompted for the external libraries like you have in your output, i typed in: sudo apt-get install -f This downloaded the ...

Open Software Sources from ubuntu dash and go to Other Software tab and unlick the links that were failed (i.e the ones that starts with): http://ppa.launchpad.net/lestcape/cinnamon/ubuntu/dists/vivid...

This is an example to download a deb file. This can be done. But it need not be, if you add a PPA to the system. e.g.: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:inkscape.dev/stable But let's go on with the example of downloading. Go to the PPA page, e.g. “Inkscape Developers” team Use the link eg. Inkscape Stable Use the link View package details Use the link ...

This is because the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX option is missing for the make. So in your ~/usbmuxd-1.1.0 add the complementary file CMakeCache.txt and write in it: CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr

If a ppa is available for a specific Ubuntu version depends on the maintainer, it is not done automatically. If the application is compatible with the latest version, it is a simple action (for the maintainer). If the application is maintained actively, it will be a matter of time, the application will be tested and possibly changed a bit. Since both Vivid ...

Updating of PPAs is made by their maintainers. They may update soon, or may not update at all. It many cases you can use packages from older versions. But it depends on software.

testdisk is well available in Vivid repos: testdisk (6.14-3build2) [universe] Just enable the universe repository: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install testdisk

It's the same repository (pool) for all series; and in any case you can never reuse a version for files with different content once it's been used in any given archive. You must upload with a changed version number in order to get new builds.

Is PPA still the only way to publish free open source app for Ubuntu Desktop? Yes, well if you do not want to go through the validation process Canonical enforces. And PPA is a lot easier if you already have a .DEB. Click (What are Click packages?) and Snappy are basically the same (where Snappy is an improved version of Click intended for server side ...

If I understand your question correctly, Not really. By using something like sudo add-apt-repository ppa:<goalppa/ppa> you are telling your system that you want the (file/program/code) you download from this ppa to be supported from this location and get updates from there. Its a security question for sure, allowing new ppa's that is. But the ...
