y ppa manager

Y PPA Manager is a project I work on in my spare time. It's a GUI tool to add, remove, purge, list and search for Launchpad PPAs. For more info on Y PPA Manager, check out this post: Y PPA Manager: Easily Search, Add, Remove Or Purge PPAs In Ubuntu.

Today I've released a new version which fixes some bugs and brings Linux Mint support (thanks to Matthew Markell for the help!) for all the Y PPA Manager tools.

If you didn't try Y PPA Manager yet, here is a video I've recorded, demoing the PPA search feature (which can list the packages - including their versions in a PPA, download .debs from a PPA and so on):

Install Y PPA Manager in Ubuntu and Linux Mint

Add the Y PPA Manager PPA and install it using the following commands (available for Ubuntu Karmic, Lucid, Maverick and Natty and Linux Mint: Helena, Isadora and Julia):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install y-ppa-manager

Once installed, you can find Y PPA Manager under Applications > System tools.

Remember to submit any bugs you may find @ Launchpad.
