GetDeb’s web site has long been the go-to spot for Ubuntu (and Debian, and Mint) users to grab the latest copies of software not yet released by their official repositories. Now GetDeb makes it even easier with a repository.
By adding GetDeb’s repository to your Linux system, you’ll get access to pre-compiled .deb packages as soon as they’re available on GetDeb’s site. That means apps like the GIMP graphics editor, Songbird, and other software that hits a major release between Ubuntu’s six-month release cycle are available to you just as soon as someone’s nice enough to compile the newest code.
GetDeb’s repository is free to use and install. Hit the link for instructions on adding it to your 9.04 or 9.10 Ubuntu system; users of older Ubuntu systems can still grab packages at GetDeb’s legacy web site.
