  1. ..And if you are using Ubuntu desktop it’s even easier to go to:

    System -> Administration -> Software Sources -> Third Party Software -> Add

  2. Isn’t it just as easy to add repositories by editing the /etc/apt/sources.lst file with either nano or gEdit? Those looking for a graphical technique will probably find Michael’s method quite easy as well.

  3. Actually, if you want something graphical, there is an even faster and easier way than going into the menu and clicking Software Sources, which does take a little longer than necessary to load just for adding a repository.

    After I posted the thing about addrepo on the forum, someone suggested adding zenity dialogs, so i wrote a graphical version called ‘gkrepo.’
