error trying to configure the repo

Postby Gobbledygook » 17/09/2010, 16:08

Hello,

I'm new to Ubuntu Linux and was pointed to this site from another forum (SammyNetbook). I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 on a USB memory stick on a Samsung N220

I'm following this - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=296&hilit=repo
But I seem to be getting an error as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv A6E348801F28F6B59D308A6036960FC31E5F36F0
gpg: requesting key 1E5F36F0 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect to host
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0

when I then open synaptic and reload, I can 'see' your repo but I get a warning message if I try to download the samsung- files (samsung-backlight etc) to the effect of "the packages cannot be verified and they may contain malicious programs" (or there abouts).

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or missing?

Thanks

You are just having a problem connecting to the Ubuntu GPG key server so you won't be able to verify the signature of the package (from the repository).

You can still install the samsung_tools or samsung_wireless etc... packages but you will always get the warning you described. The packages are there and they will install though... if you want to.

magicCookie,

thanks for the reply. Is there any reason for the error "You are just having a problem connecting to the Ubuntu GPG key server so you won't be able to verify the signature of the package" i.e is it normal and expected, or is it something that should be working?

Sorry if this is a daft/simple question, its not to a Ubuntu newbie :)

No, it's not normal, probably there was a temporary error on the keyserver when you added the repository.

All you need to do know is to add the key for the repository as a trusted key.
You can do it with this command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 1E5F36F0
