Just A Reminder About My Public Key

No, it’s not in one of those public auto-checkable thingies (I need to get around to doing this as well as getting it signed by others), but a public key IS available.

It’s at http://www.nighton.net/nighton_key.asc.

After you download it, go System -> Administration -> Software Sources.

Click the Authentication tab. Click Import Key File, select nighton_key.asc from wherever you downloaded it to. After that, you should stop getting any error messages about the lack of a key.

Alternatively, you can use this quick one-liner in a terminal:

wget -q http://www.nighton.net/nighton_key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Hope that helps!

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible to compile the latest mugshot version for Ubuntu. The version that is currently in your repository is 1.1.58, which doesn’t work with firefox 3.0.
    Since I’m running Hardy on my PC, I need this firefox 3.0 support to be able to use Mugshot.
    I already tried compiling it myself, until I have come to a point where I need the firefox idl, which I can’t find anywhere.

    So if you have some spare time to compile the new Mugshot version against Hardy, it would be greatly appreciated 🙂
