  1. It still crashes on Ubuntu 14.04…

  2. Hello to all.
    New on Ubuntu, after using mac & windows.

    I have a issue with terminal: following the indications above i’ve tried to insert the command but the answer was “sudo-apt-repository: command not found”

    Could anyone give advice?
    Thanks a lot

    • It should be sudo add-apt-repository PPA:SOMEPPA/PPA. If you still can’t add PPA, run:

      sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
  3. Still crashing for me under voyager distro……. (ubuntu based xfce)………
