Slight ranting but acceptable :~) As to whats going on with Synaptic I have no idea. 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 -'
