Ubuntu Repositories Generator

Post date: May 10, 2012 3:27:22 PM

The biggest benefit and hindrance to using/owning a linux desktop is

the availability of software... by default, linux is not populated

with lots of software, primarily to keep it small, useful, and easy to

manage, however, a lot of people don't realize that they can get more

software than just the ones listed in the software marketplace offered

through the default repositories. There are a number of repositories

out there, all of them packed with additions, more programs, more

extensions... the world over, there are thousands of programmers

developing for this OS. So, how does one get a list of the

repositories? Well, the best way is find a repository generator, and

then add that list to your sources.list. You will find your sources

at this location: /etc/apt/sources.list.

A good generator to look at for finding such lists can be found here:

Try it out, and if you have any other generators you would like to

mention, please post a reply, I would love to post them!
