2nd try:

Added manually via

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/mattva01/ubuntu gutsy main restricted universe multiverse

then did a:

sudo apt-get update

Then:

sudo apt-get install python-gasp

Result:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package python-gasp

Time to rewrite FAQ #31?

@glif
Opops, it's "hardy", not "gutsy" (don't worry, hardy packages for GASP work on all deb distros).

Fixed.

Sorry but still no-go:

Followed new Faq 31 and:

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
  python-gasp
E: There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes

However, retrying after exit:

sudo apt-get install python-gasp worked

I'm sorry, but I get:

-bash: /etc/apt/: Is a directory

Am I entering it in wrong or something?

yes, you're puting a space in between /etc/apt and sources.list
