Synaptic source signature key

Asked by Vkthor on 2009-08-26

I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope.

I've added these lines to my Synaptics manager third part apps:
  deb jaunty main
  deb-src jaunty main

as mentioned in this announcement:
  2009-07-31: GnoMenu available in Launchpad Repositories

Can you please tell me what is the signature key for installing these files? It seems to me that my system doesn't like to install from what it thinks are not trusted sources :-)


BTW: Do I need to have the (source) checked? I think I'll not need the source code for anything. I surely can't understand it :-D

Telling Ubuntu how to authenticate the PPA

Now Ubuntu knows about the PPA. It also needs to know how to check the software hasn't been tampered with since Launchpad built it.

Note: This is not an endorsement of any of the software in PPAs. You must make sure you trust the PPA owner before installing their software.

Step 1: On the PPA's overview page you'll see the PPA's OpenPGP key id. 95B47D2A (NOTE: this is the actual key for GnoMenu)

Step 2: Open your terminal and enter:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 95B47D2A

Step 3: Finally, tell Ubuntu to re-load the details of each software archive it knows about:

sudo apt-get update

You're now ready to install software from the PPA!
