    Ubuntu 14.04 lts reports to me about the “sudo add-apt-repository ppa:samrog131/ppa”

    Cannot add PPA: ‘ppa:samrog131/ppa’.

    Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.???

    • Hmm strange! It looks like the PPA had been taken down. I have updated it with another PPA which is still active.

      Let me know how this goes.

        OK. The PPA worked but got stuck on the install bit.
