Debian Packages

This page contains some Debian packages which I am either developing, maintaining or otherwise hold my interest.

To obtain these packages, add these lines to your sources.list:

deb wheezy main
deb-src wheezy main

To prevent apt from complaining that it doesn't trust the packages, you will need to add my GnuPG key to your apt-keyring. This can be done like this (note that the commands can also be run as root without using sudo if you do not have it configured):

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-key 63E4E277
gpg: requesting key 63E4E277 from hkp server
gpg: key 63E4E277: public key "Roberto C. Sanchez <>" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
$ gpg --export -a 63E4E277 | sudo apt-key add -

Should that not work for you (for example, because you are behind some sort of a firewall that only permits outbound HTTP connections, then you can either locate a public key server that supports HTTP and pass it to gpg with the --keyserver option, you can download the key through the web interface of a public keyserver, or you can download from the link on my top-level home page.

Once you have added the sources and the GnuPG key, be sure to update your package listing by running apt-get update. Once that is all done, you should see the packages from my repository.

Please note that these packages are built for Wheezy. If you want Sid or Jessie versions of these packages, please obtain them from the official Debian archives. If you are interested in a Wheezy version of a package that I currently maintain, then please look for the package at Backports. If you find the package neither here nor there, then please either mail me or file a wishlist bug against the package.

Please remember that these are not official Debian packages. If you encounter a bug or a problem with a package you obtain from here, please email a bug report to Do not send bug reports to the Debian BTS.
