    My ubuntu couldn’t find the gpg key. How can I resolve this?

    • Geekster says:

      1st (and the easiest solution): you can add the key by hand: $ sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys F9CB8DB0

      2nd (and the harder solution): try to remove the ppa and add it back again. it is either in /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d, under the wine directory.

    WOrked for me..So easy too lol. Thank you. For the Linux noobies out there like me dont insert the $ just type or copy and paste (via right click) in terminal the “sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa” . It will ask you to read the agreement and then agree to it also in the terminal so pay attention to the progress. Thank you Geekster.

      I think anyone should feel free to share their opinions but they have to accept that some will not agree. Those that don#182&7;t agree maybe a lot more vocal than the writer they disagree with.

    I’m having the same problem installing another package and I realize there are other sources for the binary but what about the “held packages” message.
