Bluefish packages for Ubuntu Linux now provided by Klaus Vormweg PPA

I will not longer provide packages of the bluefish-project for the Ubuntu distribution, because I lack time and interest in building and maintaining the necessary environments. Ubuntu-users however can still install and use recent releases of bluefish by changing to the PPA provided by Klaus Vormweg, who kindly agreed to officially provide packages for the project. Please follow the instructions given there.

Entries in /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* pointing to my repository should lead to the above mentioned PPA. But because Klaus is only offering the main-tree in his PPA, you might see some errors thrown by apt-get|aptitude|... as long as you keep my repository in your sources.list. So you probably want to remove any reference to my repository together with my repository key and/or the wgdd-archive-keyring package.

# remove sources.list snippets
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.wgdd.de_ubuntu_*.list
# find any references left
grep -rn /etc/apt/sources.list* # --> now delete those entries
# remove and purge the wgdd-archive-keyring package
apt-get autoremove --purge wgdd-archive-keyring
# or delete the key, if you never had the above package installed
apt-key del E394D996

You are done. Now download and install recent packages:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
