Followed posts on adding Public Keys -- Fails


I don't quite understand. While following this walkthrough on how to install amarok 2 I get a public key error. After following this thread's advice and this thread's advice, I get these errors respectively:

wget -q http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-mem...ubuntu-key.gpg -0- | sudo apt-key add -
wget: invalid option -- '0'
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
$ wget -q http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-mem...ubuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

I would guess you need a space between the O and -, so try "-O -". I assume you are trying to redirect output to stdout.

Those links you provided don't help a lot - one doesn't work and the other seems to have little to do with your post.

Got it. That must have been it. Thank you!!

The links were to the project I was working on at the time. I'm not surprised that one doesn't work. It was old to begin with.

Again, thanks! Amarok 2 is installed now.
