Is there a PPA for this package?

Asked by Biep on 2018-06-02

I have an Aura One, which the Calibre version in the standard repository doesn't support, so I'd like to add a PPA where the latest version can be found. I found this place in Launchpad, but no PPA information.
I don't want to do a manual install, as I want apt to update Calibre automatically whenever a new version comes out.

Maybe I am just blind, but where is the PPA information for this package?

Thanks!
I found this PPA, which works: ppa:jonathonf/calibre
It has no history, however, so I don't know whether it will stay up-to-date.

I'll keep the question open for a while to see if others know of more authoritative PPAs, but you basically solved the problem.

Your are right - this PPA has been kept up-to-date for almost half a year now.
I'll take that as proof of perseverance. :-)

Duckduckgo has a bang for PPA searching. I just searched:

!ppa calibre

Dead useful

Yes, it is. Thanks a lot!

Stupid me (again) - I use Duckduckgo, love the bangs, and simply never thought to try this..
