I was on my way to installing a bitcoin wallet ppa, when I realized the file /etc/apt/sources.list is missing from that directory.

I am using trusty, with Mate. If I add sources.list, will it work?

I hadn't realized there were changes to the software sources in apt.

What is it we are doing for PPAs now?

How are apt sources controlled now?


You should have /etc/apt/sources.list and you could have additionally list files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, usually PPAs.

If you don't have /etc/apt/sources.list, create a new on. Open Software & Updates and select, what you need.
