Ubuntu – How to add Debian experimental repo to Ubuntu


I would like to install cups-1.6.1-2 (link) from the experimental repository.

I suppose I have to add something to /etc/apt/sources.list but I can't figure out what.

Can anyone figure out (or know) how to add the experimental repo?

Best Answer

The Experimental repository is a Debian repository, not an Ubuntu repository.

I would NOT RECOMMEND using the Experimental repository as a source for anything. It has a lot of packages which can break everything, hence the name "Experimental".

CUPS 1.6.1-2 exists in Raring. Once raring is released, you can use Raring.
