Installation issue with keyring

Asked by Merlin Cox on 2015-01-30

I have relatively new installation of Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit).

I tried to install grub-customizer wiuth these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

I get this output:

gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp61ript4u/secring.gpg' created
gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp61ript4u/pubring.gpg' created
gpg: requesting key 3F055C03 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpg: /tmp/tmp61ript4u/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: key 3F055C03: public key "Launchpad PPA for Daniel Richter" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
OK

After this grub-customizer does not seem to be installed.

Does this imply I need to set something up in the keyring before attempting to install grub-customizer?

This is just the output of the first command and it seems to be ok. What about the other two (update, install)?

Thanks. I thought the keyring messages were an output from the install command.

However it looks like this is a red herring and that for some reason the install command did not get run.

I'm confused now. It it solved or isn't it? If there's an error when installing - what's the error message?

It is solved.

I suspect that what happened is that I pasted

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

into the terminal window without a carriage return on the last line, so the first two commands ran but the install command did not.

Not realising this, I mistook the keyring message as an output from the install command and thought that the install command had failed.

I have subsequently ran the install command separately and it installed without problems.

Thanks for your work on this. It makes setting up a dual boot system that is family friendly a lot easier.
