Check if the PPA name or format is correct.

On my Ubuntu 14.04, I am trying to install the Captiva icon pack listed in this omgubuntu post . So I copied the following command to the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:captiva/ppa


but i get the following result:

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:captiva/ppa'.
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct. 


Am I doing something wrong here? Any help is appreciated.

Also make sure your time and date are correct. I had an offset two months ago and got the same error.



I tried adding this ppa and it works. As a workaround to add it to your system, do the following as root ( sudo su

before running the following code):

echo deb trusty main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/captiva-ppa-trusty.list
apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys B12AB791
apt-get update
apt-get install -y captiva-icon-theme
