Get the Configuration Files for APT
The recent Debian and Ubuntu systems use the content of the folders
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d for configurating their package managers.
You could download and copy the following file for accessing to the Arakhnê.org package repository. An alternative, is to follow the instructions in the next section for installing the repository by hand.
- /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/arakhne.gpg: for generating this file, you should following the steps 1.3 below.

If you are not confident with shell, you may use Synaptic to add this package source.
The repository and the packages are signed by a GPG public key. You must add this key into your apt key list to avoid warnings.
- Add the key with Synaptic:
- Download the public key;
- Open synaptic;
- Menu > Config > Repositories;
- Open the tab "Authentifications" or "Keys";
- Click on "Import a key file";
- Select the downloaded key, and click "Ok".
- Add the key from the MIT key server:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu 21A59D90
- Add the key from the command line:
- Download the public key:
wget -q http://download.tuxfamily.org/arakhne/public3.asc -Othekey.asc
- Add it into the apt system with the following command line:
sudo apt-key add thekey.asc
- Alternatively, you could add the key into a specific file with the following command line:
sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/arakhne.gpg add thekey.asc
- Download the public key:
Again if you are not confident with shell, you may use Synaptic to add this signature.
