    I don’t get how you add the verification key thing “gpg –keyserver –recv 2836CB0A8AC93F7A
    gpg –export –armor 2836CB0A8AC93F7A | sudo apt-key add -”
    Where does that go?
    I’m getting an error now when i do apt-get update:

    W: GPG error: jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5
