Ubuntu B-Sides is a project that aims at bringing to you the "rest of the disc", a number of great applications that couldn't make it to the default Ubuntu desktop (by that, we mean directly off the official CD), but nicely complement it. We do this by adding applications and not replacing those that are provided by the release, and without breaking the "one application per task" rule... Which means you shouldn't expect to see alternate browsers or MP3 players, but will still see a lot of really cool apps such a Gwibber, pitivi...

    Can you publish the repository key and instructions for manually adding it? I am behind a fw that blocks access to the keyserver. Thanks.

    At the moment this will support only karmic so if you use the tutorial it will install all the required keys
