Seveas Ubuntu Packages: Ubuntu (5.10 / 6.06 / 6.10)

By | 2006/10/21

Dennis Kaarsemaker has been publishing Ubuntu related repositories for quite some time. He is one of the big players in the community ( and maintains quite a few packages for the community. For those not yet aware of this resource I’ve got some tips below:

  1. – use this to generate a custom sources.list. Includes everything from main and security updates to community supported, backports, bleeding edge, Wine, KDE, Cipherfunk (multimedia), PLF (Penguin Liberation Front) and Opera. Note: some of the included packages are non-free.

Dennis has also put together packages supporting the last three releases. Breezy (5.10), Dapper (6.06) and now Edgy Eft (6.10) are available. To authenticate these packages via GPG import the key 1135D466.

The following mirrors are available:

  • (Sponsored by Brett Johnson)
  • (Sponsored by Brandon Holtsclaw)
  • (Sponsored by Niels Roosen)
  • (Sponsored by Henri Cook (
  • (Sponsored by Peter Lieverdink)

To include one of these repositories in your sources.list add one of the following examples:

# Seveas Packages - imbrandon mirror
deb edgy-seveas all
deb-src edgy-seveas all

# Seveas Packages - ubuntulinux mirror
deb edgy-seveas all
deb-src edgy-seveas all

Some of the packages maintained in these repositories include (versions match date of this post):

  • dirac 0.5.2
  • flashplugin-nonfree 9-beta-1
  • ftd4linux 0.98.3
  • gftp 2.0.18
  • gst-pitfdll 0.10
  • lame 3.97
  • libdvdcss 1.2.9
  • mirage 0.8.1
  • seveas-meta 6.10
  • ttf-fossfonts 0.0.3
  • w32codecs 2006-06-11

So, enjoy a few extra updated packages and a big thanks goes out to Seveas (Dennis) for his contributions. If you’d like to thank him or contact him about these packages you can find him at dennis {at} or as Seveas on

A recent comment reminded me that I completely forgot about including instructions for the GPG key. To import Seveas GPG key you can use the command below:

wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -

At this point you should have everything you need to get these cool custom packages.

    I hate this new gpg thing; what a nuisance! Thanks for the Sveas repositories. Unfortunately, they’re useless without the gpg, and I’m too much of a newbie to know where to go looking for them.

    I have updated the post to include the GPG import steps. I completely spaced it. Thank you for the reminder.
