Error in Software Sources in Ubuntu 9.10

Asked by Pabs on 2009-11-07

Hello. I recently "upgraded" to Ubuntu 9.10 from 8.04 by uninstalling the latter and doing a fresh install of the former. This version rocks. It really looks good with my 22" monitor.

Now, here's the problem. I tried tinkering with software sources because I wanted to install cinelerra. It's got these on the 9.10 part of the "Get Cinelerra" page:

9.10 Karmic Koala

    for all x86 (full working on 32 and 64 bits), by Paolo Rampino:
    deb http://akirad.cinelerra.org akirad-karmic main

        Installation notes:
        - For your convenience you can install a package for detecting your version of Ubuntu, installing akirad repository and keeping it updated.
        Just double click on the link http://akirad.cinelerra.org/pool/addakirad.deb and install it with GDebi Package Installer.
        Alternatively, use one of the following terminal commands:
        wget -q http://akirad.cinelerra.org/pool/addakirad.deb && sudo dpkg -i addakirad.deb && rm addakirad.deb && sudo apt-get update
        or
        echo deb http://akirad.cinelerra.org akirad-karmic main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/akirad.list && wget -q http://akirad.cinelerra.org/dists/akirad.key -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
        - 7 are the packages available in the akirad repository:

            Comunity Version of Cinelerra

                cinelerracv (all computers)
                cinelerracv-gl (best on computer with opengl2.0 shader)
                cinelerracv-smp (best on multiprocessors computer, it allows also opengl2.0 shader)

            Simeon Völkel merge between CinelerraCV2.1 and CinelerraHV4

                cinelerrasv (all computers)
                cinelerrasv-gl (best on computer with opengl2.0 shader)
                cinelerrasv-smp (best on multiprocessors computer, it allows also opengl2.0 shader)

            Utility

                cinelerra-swtc (extra Shape Wipe Transitions)

        - Ubuntu Karmic uses Pulse Audio as Sound driver. Since it comes with a PulseAudio ESD compatibility layer, Cinelerra can be set to work with PulseAudio. Simply open Cinelerra and go to Settings->Preferences->Playback->Audio Driver. Select ESound and set the following parameters:
        Server:
        Port: 7007
        - These packages set shmmax to 0x7fffffff and add non-English language support for Cinelerra.
        - Please, report any package bug to akir4d at gmail dot com

I assumed that "deb http://akirad.cinelerra.org akirad-karmic main" is a repository (if that's what it's called)/software source, so I put it in the software sources of my system. Now, it said "Reload" after putting it in, but after some time, it says this:

W: GPG error: http://security.ubuntu.com karmic-security Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <email address hidden>

I thought all I needed to remedy the problem was to remove the address, so I did but the problem still persists.

Sorry for the intro, and long post.

It says:

 Just double click on the link http://akirad.cinelerra.org/pool/addakirad.deb and install it with GDebi Package Installer.

which means you download this .deb file, right-click on it to open with Gdebi and follow the instructions. It will add the repository, add the GPG key and do the update so you can install cinelerra.

The alternative is to do either one of the terminal commands (open a Terminal and do copy (highlight the command) and paste (click the mouse rolling ball, or both left+right buttons simultaneously to paste the highlighted content) the command into the terminal.

Your problem was if you add the repository but there is no way for the system to authenticate the packages from that repository, it won't download the packages. So the need to add the authentication key.

Hey Pabs.

Have a look on this https://help.ubuntu.com/9.04/add-applications/C/adding-repos.html
In the bottom it tells you how to add GPG keys, otherwise just follows the Vu Do Quynh's way.
