GETDEB and PLAYDEB are repositories that allows users to install applications and games that are not available in the official Ubuntu repositories. Currently, the GETDEB and PLAYDEB repositories are down, but we will show you how to use mirror repositories instead until the problem get fixed.

GetDeb & PlayDeb Installation

To install GetDeb and PlayDeb on Ubuntu 11.04/11.10, open the terminal and run these commands:

wget http://archive.getdeb.net/install_deb/playdeb_0.3-1~getdeb1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i playdeb_0.3-1~getdeb1_all.deb

Adding Mirror Repositories

   GetDeb

To replace the GetDeb repository with the mirror, edit the getdeb.list file with this command:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list

Replace:

deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu oneiric-getdeb apps

with these two lines:

deb http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps
deb-src http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps



Save the file and close it, then run this command to update your repositories:

sudo apt-get update

You can now easily install applications from the GetDeb repository!

  PlayDeb

Via the terminal, run this command:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playdeb.list

Replace the repository with these two lines:

deb http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb games
deb-src http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb games

Save the file and close it:


Run an update with this command:

sudo apt-get update

You can now install games from the PlayDeb repository!

That's it!
