How to add repository to Ubuntu

I think, that I don't need to introduce website where you can find a lot of latest packages which you can easy install in Ubuntu. Downloading every package "by hands" isn't convenient so I will show you how to add GetDeb repository to your Ubuntu which allow you to install new applications by one command in Terminal.

Just type in the console the command (or paste using shortcut Ctrl+Shift+V):

echo "deb jaunty/" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list && sudo apt-get update
That's it. Now in Synaptic or other package manager you can simply find the packages from Remember that it's non-official repository so if something doesn't work there's nothing you can do.
