  1. I got it to install after running this on the newly added repo file:

    perl -pi -e ‘s/mavarick/lenny/g’ \
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/doctormo-ppa-maverick.list

    Something, (perhaps the special characters in my password) are not compatible with that code.

  2. One can also simply edit the software sources (eg via the software center) to specify lucid as distro instead of maverick. It still just doesn’t work anymore.
