Had a spare minute to pass along some of the many links we’ve used to keep tabs on Cherokee. If you need more detail about Cherokee, please look here :


The following items may cover details posted elsewhere on this blog:

How do I use software from a PPA?

To start installing and using software from a Personal Package
Archive, you first need to tell Ubuntu where to find the PPA.

Important: The contents of Personal Package Archives are not checked
or monitored. You install software from them at your own risk.

Adding the PPA to Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and later

If you’re using the most recent version of Ubuntu (or any version from
Ubuntu 9.10 onwards), you can add a PPA to your system with a single
line in your terminal.

Step 3: You’ll see that the text-box directly below reads something like this:

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

Copy those lines.

Step 4: Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

This will open a text editor containing the list of archives that your
system is currently using. Scroll to the bottom of the file and paste
the lines you copied in the step above.

Save the file and exit the text editor.
Step 5: Back on the PPA’s overview page, look for the Signing key
heading. You’ll see something like:

1024R/72D340A3 (What is this?)

Copy the portion after the slash but not including the help link; e.g.
just 72D340A3.

Step 6: Now you need to add that key to your system so Ubuntu can
verify the packages from the PPA. In your terminal, enter:

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys 72D340A3

Replace 72D340A3 with whatever you copied in the step 5.

This will now pull down the PPA’s key and add it to your system.

Step 3: Now, as a one-off, you should tell your system to pull down
the latest list of software from each archive it knows about,
including the PPA you just added:

sudo apt-get update

Now you’re ready to start installing software from the PPA!
