PPA Download - Command Not Found

Recommended Posts


I am brand new to Linux and have tried to follow the quickstart instructions.

I have steam, wine and RCT2 downloaded. I then tried to install Open RCT2 from the PPA but I can't get past the first line...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openrct2/nightly

Entering this just gives me the following message "sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found"

Apologies for what I assume is a stupid question. 

Is anyone able to help me, or point in the right direction?

You followed a guide for Ubuntu and its derivatives, like Linux Mint. The error message suggests that you are using a different Linux distribution.

In order to help you, we will need to know your Linux distribution. (This applies in general - when asking help with Linux, always mention your distribution.)

Try the following:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys BF69432E6A3929E2428A1418F4241060A4EC1B27
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openrct2/nightly/ubuntu bionic main"
sudo apt install openrct2

After trying that I get this message at the end: 

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 openrct2 : Depends: libduktape202 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libicu60 (>= 60.1-1~) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


A google search seemed to suggest these lines: 

sudo apt install --fix-broken
sudo apt-get update

The only bit that jumped out at me was then - Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
