I have attempted to add Shames repo maybe 20 times now through the gui interface of it and it simply will not enter..Given up on that. I then go into sources.list and add it there manually however when I then return to Synaptic and open it I get the "malformed whatsisname here" or some such guff so thats also a no go. Until someone can explain whats going on with adding repo's through Synaptic and having it just not accept the entry I'm kinda stumpted. I've followed the instructions I can find on the web about adding entries through Synaptics interface to make sure I've got the method correct and as far as I can see am totally doing it by the book,,it however still won't work.

This is the way it looks in the Synaptics add repo dialog.

Shames site may give the key. I just ignore it as it has no effect on anything. You know Shames is legit.

Right. So are you saying I don't need to concern myself with anything else..Do I need to move the entry up the list in Synaptic or anything or do I just leave it down the bottom and check out what I can download from his repo by a reload.

To install Shame's key, execute the following in a terminal:

su -c 'wget http://download.tuxfamily.org/shames/A42A6CF5.gpg -O- | apt-key add -'
The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.
