My Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) sources.list

So, a little late, but here it is. After Ubuntu started using a simpler way of adding PPAs, this is a two stage thing.

Please add a comment if this is helpful, or if I messed something up. (Specifically, some GPG commands could be wrong, as I added them to the list long after actually adding the keys on my own computers.)
If you’re not already using Dropbox, the best thank you would be to use this referral, so I get an increase in storage space: https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTE3OTM5NTk

A word of warning: Adding 3rd party repositories are not guaranteed to be safe. You may be opening up to new bugs, security risks, etc. The packages are not subject to any guarantees other than those given be the people managing the repositories. The PPAs may look “official”, but they are in no way officially affiliated with Ubuntu, they are community driven.
That being said, have fun!

1. PPAs

For PPAs on Launchpad, you’ll need to run Synaptic, Settings > Repositories > “Other software” tab > “Add” and then add a line like this:

ppa:some-repo/ppa

That will automatically add the source to a new file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, and also add the GPG key for the repository you add. These are the PPAs I use:

Chromium daily debs — Google’s browser:
ppa:chromium-daily/beta

Docky development
ppa:docky-core/ppa

Global menu — have the application menus in the panel. I don’t really use this, I just have it to check it out every once in a while:
ppa:globalmenu-team/ppa

Gmail notify — a gmail notifier that integrates into the indicator applet in the notification area. Only support for one account though:
ppa:gm-notify-maintainers/ppa

Updates to Gnome Shell:
ppa:ricotz/testing

Zeitgeist:
ppa:zeitgeist/ppa

Wine updates:
ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

2. Other repositories

Here’s a link. Add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list or call it 3rdparty.list and put it in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

For each repository there are instructions for adding the GPG key as a comment. If you don’t add the GPG keys, you’ll get warnings. I have sometimes encountered not being prompted for the sudo password, so if the GPG command hangs for more than a little time, try entering your password, and see if you get a message saying “OK”.

Oh, for Virtualbox, there are betas of version 3.2. They are not in the repository, but you can download a package from here. It’s out of beta now, and there’s a Lucid repository.

This is the content of the sources.list file:
