'Download-Monitor' install problem


I'm trying to install 'download monitor' on Linux Mint 12 and have followed the instructions at

However, when I
sudo apt-get install download-monitor
I end up getting the error
E: Unable to locate package download-monitor
Not only that, but after adding the ppa, now update manager end's up with
Failed to fetch  404  Not Found
Failed to fetch  404  Not Found
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I Have however removed the ppa's from the software sources so believe this would not be an issue anymore.

I even tried downloading the .deb file for 'download-monitor' from Launchpad but trying to install with 'Package Installer' gives
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: gir1.2-unity-5.0
Would really appreciate some help with this, pls.

Thanks for this.

Is gir1.2-unity-5.0 related to the Unity desktop of Ubuntu? I ask 'cos I use Linux Mint 12 (which I believe does not use Unity?) and fear it may clash with my dektop?
