just tried to install a key from acestream (Ubuntu 14.04). This command doesn't work for me:

sudo wget -O - http://repo.acestream.org/keys/acestream.public.key | sudo apt-key add -

The key is showed in terminal but not in "apt-key list" ..

[sudo] password for phil:

You can also do this without the terminal (You've probably already done steps 1-3):

  1. Open the Ubuntu Software center.

  2. Edit - Software sources - Other Software - Add

  3. In the field "APT Line" type deb http://repo.acestream.org/ubuntu/ trusty main

  4. If you're a developer and want the source, uncheck the binaries. If you're a user (most probably) uncheck the "Source Code" one.

  5. Then download the http://repo.acestream.org/keys/acestream.public.key in a location you'll remember for the next step.

  6. Go to the authentication tab and import the key file from the previous step.

Done!

  • Whan it's a ppa, it's even simpler: just add "ppa:user/ppa-name" in step 3 and forget about the other steps... – Fabby Nov 30 '14 at 23:05

    Warning! Achtung! Внимание! You're adding a third-party repository to your Ubuntu system and this repository has not been checked and will never be checked by the Ubuntu Security folks (as it's not even on launchpad) so think again if you really need this repository and if you really cannot use qBittorrent or Transmission or any of the othe bittorrent clients out there that are checked for security flaws! – Fabby Nov 30 '14 at 23:12

The first sudo is not necessary. The wget command can be run by any user.

The problem lies with the second sudo. It is probably waiting for you to type your password. Unfortunately, there is no prompt printed.

There are three possible solutions:

  1. run the command and then when it does not continue, type your password. It will not show on screen.

  2. first run some other sudo like sudo ls, type the password after the prompt and then try the failed command again. Now the second sudo will not ask for the password and all will be fine.

    $ sudo ls
    $ wget -O- http://repo.acestream.org/keys/acestream.public.key | sudo apt-key add -
    
  3. give yourself root rights sudo su - and run the failed command without sudo

    $ sudo su -
    # wget -O- http://repo.acestream.org/keys/acestream.public.key | apt-key add -
