How do I get the key for debian multimedia installed?


I have multi media on my sources list. Apt-get updates it. the sig is not confirmed because I can't get the key (the .deb is on my Desktop) to install.

I used the directions on the website to no avail. What now?

The easiest way would be to do apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring

If your using Ubuntu rather than Debian you would be better off using the mediabuntu repo

This is an installation of lenny (Debian 5.01). I am sorry I should have specified that in my original post.

I have all the repos I need (I think) working, it is just that I can't get the key installed.

Make sure you have an entry in /etc/apt/sources.list like this:

deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org Lenny main

Then use the command craigevil gave you earlier as root:

Code:
apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
Then answer 'yes' when prompted to install the keyring.
To check do apt-get update as root.
Make sure there are no errors relating to missing keys.

emetib,
That was fun but running that as SU got me nothing but interesting warnings.

the trooper,
This all seems straight forward. This is what I thought I had done. There was a typo in my entry.

Thanks a bunch. I ran apt-get again just so I could send this:
Code:
debian:/home/iam# apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
debian-multimedia-keyring is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
debian:/home/iam#
