Re: [PLUG] First attempt at creating a customized Live CD


Not sure what you mean by "that line". If you are referring to the add-apt-repository command that creates the file /etc/apt/sources/list.d/libreoffice-ppa-natty.list (or lucid, maverick) which has essentially the same effect as adding a repo to your sources.list file. It does not add to the sources.list nor does it activate any repos already in the sources.list.

Usually to get Java you can uncomment lines in your sources.list file referring to the partners repo which is where you can find Sun's Java, Flash, Skype and more. I have never seen so I will check that out.

Thanks for the reply. So does that line just apply to additional
repositories included in sources.list, or is there an overall one for Ubuntu
(Natty in my case). Above the default, I have enabled
which I believe was necessary for Sun Java, and added the PPA for torproject


You are correct about the signing key. To find the one you want let's
use LibreOffice as an example...

Go to the PPA's site on Launchpad

Then click the link "Technical details about this PPA"

There you will see the signing key.


If you are in a fully chrooted LiveCD environment you can use the
following to add the PPA and the key as well. Then apt-get update, etc.

add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

The details of this command (the name of the PPA not the syntax) are on
the Launchpad site as well. add-apt-repository is not in the server
version of Lucid. You have to install it.
