Adding PPAs Easily

Launchpad homepageImage via Wikipedia
If you are testing Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, you will have noticed that it is now dead simple to add Launchpad PPAs to your list of repositories. How simple?

  1. Open System > Administration > Software Sources.
  2. Go to the "Third Party Software" tab and press "Add...."
  3. Type ppa: and press "Add Source."
  4. There is no "4."
The PPA will be added, along with its GPG key, meaning that you no longer have to go through that mess.

Cool beans, eh?
