PPA Manager

This is a tool that lets you easily add, remove or purge PPAs as well as search for packages in Launchpad PPAs, a feature that should be very useful when you can't find a PPA for your favourite app on WebUpd8 or other similar websites. Here's a quick list of Y PPA Manager features:

  • list the packages available in a PPA added on your system;
  • download packages from PPAs without adding them;
  • PPAs backup / restore, along with all the PPA keys;
  • update single repositories using a command line tool (by the way, when you add a PPA using Y PPA Manager, it's updated without updating all the software sources) called "update-ppa" – usage example: "sudo update-ppa ppa:webupd8team/java"; this feature was implemented by Satya;
  • some options that should help you re-enable the working PPAs when upgrading to a newer Ubuntu / Linux Mint version;
  • remove duplicate PPAs;
  • Unity quicklists / optional AppIndicator;
  • more.
Install Y PPA Manager:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install y-ppa-manager
