  1. I get this error at the end of the terminal when I go to update:
    W: GPG error: http://mirrors.dotsrc.org lucid-getdeb Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8A515F046D7E7CF

  2. Try this from a terminal session…
    sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com A8A515F046D7E7CF

  3. their site goes down…ALOT. all the failures seem to be because they are running the site in a vm-server with other sites and the vm for getdeb runs up to 100% cpu usage. from their blog, they seem to have a unique setup that just seems to crap out-often! they have complained often that the getdeb vm crashing requires a reboot of the entire server.
    glad to see someone mirroring their site. the ubuntu/debian community needs this!

  4. Getdeb are a bunch of half-wits. You can tell because they have got Cristoph Korn helping to run things.

    I wouldn’t touch their stuff with a barge-pole.

  5. well i don’t know anything about him to comment, but ANY site that helps out the debian/ubuntu community is appreciated. he/they have gone to great pains to give us updated debian packages to useful applications. normally he/they are the first to compile/recompile packages and upload them to the repositories. the work he/they have done with playdeb is just extraordinary. maintaining a website is HARD work—criticizing one is far too easy.

  7. This is the correct command for key:
    sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys A8A515F046D7E7CF

    And, you can use “games” instead or along with “apps”
