Description:

Y PPA Manager is a tool for easily managing Launchpad PPAs that uses YAD for a graphical user interface (a Zenity fork which comes with a lot of improvements) and comes as a .deb and with a Launchpad PPA for easy updates.

Y PPA Manager features:

- Add PPA

- Delete PPA - displays all the enabled PPAs (disabled PPAs will not be listed) and you can delete any PPA from that list
Purge PPA - uses the "ppa-purge" tool to downgrade the packages in the selected PPA to the version in the official Ubuntu repositories and disables that PPA

- List packages in a PPA enabled on your computer - lists all the packages that are available for your Ubuntu version in the selected PPA (only PPAs that you have added to your system and are enabled will show up here)

- Search in all Launchpad PPAs - will perform a search in all the Launchpad PPAs for the package you enter in the search form. The search uses the Launchpad PPA search so it may return empty PPAs if the PPAs have a description that matches your search, or a PPA with packages for a different Ubuntu version then your current Ubuntu version (or the Ubuntu version you\'ve set Y PPA Manager to search for). You will be able to perform the following operations on a PPA: add it, list all the packages in that PPA for your Ubuntu version (or the Ubuntu version you\'ve set Y PPA Manager to search for in the settings) - including the package versions, download selected packages from a PPA, copy PPA link (so you can then paste it in a web browser).

Well yeah, dockbarx and windows applets ARE software, but is software to modifiy/tweak/personalize the user interface of any distribution with the gnome desktop, so there is a reason why dockbarx and windows applets are here.

So, why this software is posted here?

And what is the difference between this ppa manager and the one in the software sources in debian/ubuntu, the one in ubuntu tweak, the one in ailurus and the countless scripts? what is the "killer feature"?

Just sayin' You guys are trying to make easy something that alerady is

Been hoping for a search feature for ppas forever...however y-ppa-manager is not working for me.

It launches fine but no matter which option i select if gives me an error "You are not using Ubuntu 9.10 10.04 or 10.10"

It is correct however I was under the understanding that it should work for Ubuntu 11.04 as well.

Edit...read through some of the comments on the blog and came up with a fix.

Modified /usr/y-ppa-cmd from

case $UBUVER in
karmic|lucid|maverick) ;;
*) echo You are not using Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 or 10.10

to

case $UBUVER in
karmic|lucid|maverick|natty) ;;
*) echo You are not using Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 or 10.10

Oops didn't work quite as expected...

Haven't tried everything yet however if I try to list packages of a non natty ppa it comes up blank.

I'll have to tinker a bit more ;)

By default it lists the packages in a PPA for your Ubuntu version only. However you can change that by editing the /etc/y-ppa-manager.conf file

Thanks. I've fixed that but I cannot upload the packages to the PPA for now because Launchpad PPAs are currently down for maintenance. As soon as I can upload new packages, you should get an update with this fix (as well as some other fixes).
