Ubuntu and Debian are two popular Linux distributions. They are using deb and apt for package management by default. In default repositories there are a lot of different and rich package alternatives. We may need to add some external repositories. PPA is a protocol used to add repositories to the apt. It means personal package archives. Some can create a package and publish it through his own server. Then we can easily add this package and repository to our Linux system with PPA.

  • add-apt-repository is our command to add
  • ppa: specifies repository will be specified in PPA format
  • webupd8team/java is repository name hosted at Launchpad

Above we added Oracle Java repository to our sources.list.  PPA’s are generally published at https://launchpad.net
