How to add this on xfce when upgrading from 3.4 to 3.5
Added new repository and the public keys:
– virtualbox
– liquorix
– google earth
– google talk plugin
– google music manager

I have in SparkyAptus only main and custum rep.


Do as root:
1. Remove old google-chrome repo:
sudo rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
2. Add new google repo:
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list
add the lines to the file:
## google-chrome web browser
# deb stable main
## google earth
# deb stable main
## google talk plugin
# deb stable main

Save the file and close it.
3. Add liquorix repo:
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
Paste the text:
## liquorix
deb sid main

Save & close.
4. Add virtualbox repo:
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list
Paste the text:
## virtualbox
# deb wheezy contrib

Save & close.
5. Add virtualbox public key:
sudo wget -q -O- | apt-key add -
6. Update package list:
sudo apt-get update
7. Install liquorix public key:
sudo apt-get install liquorix-archive-keyring liquorix-keyring liquorix-keyrings
Then update package list again.

If you'd like to activate google or virtualbox repos simply remove the single '#' from the repo line so it has to start with 'deb' not '# deb'.
