Now, the problem is when I run

Best Answer

That PPA doesn't exist for 'Trusty', just for 'Raring'.

Try to replace 'trusty' with 'raring' for distribution. Just select PPA in 'Software & Updates' (your image) than click 'Edit...' and write 'raring' (without quotes) under 'Distribution'. Do this for 'Source Code' PPA also.

After that

sudo apt-get update

and install what you need. Probably will work everything you install but without guarantee.
