How to add Medibuntu repository in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise pangolin and 11.10| Via Terminal and GUI
Updated 10/03/2012 Medibuntu is a packaging project dedicated to distributing software that cannot be included in Ubuntu for various reasons, related to geographical variations in legislation regarding intellectual property, security and other issues:
- patentability of software, algorithms, formats and other abstract creation
- legal restrictions on freedom of speech or communication
- restrictions on the use of certain types of technical solution, such as cryptography
- legal restrictions on imports of software technology, requiring for example specific permissions
In this tutorial will show you how to add medibuntu repository to Ubuntu 9.10+ and above including the upcoming release Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin
1- Install Medibuntu using command Line in Ubuntu 9.10 + ( Including Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin):
- Open terminal and enter the folowing command :
sudo -E wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update
Medibuntu’s repository is deactivated by upgrading to a newer Ubuntu release, so you should run this command again after the release upgrade.
- Now you may also wish to add the following packages. The first (APP-INSTALL-DATA-MEDIBUNTU) will cause many apps from the Medibuntu repository to appear in Ubuntu Software Center (Ubuntu 9.10+) or Add/Remove Applications (versions prior to 9.10). The second will allow users to generate crash reports against Medibuntu packages and submit them to the Medibuntu bugtracker.
sudo apt-get install app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu
