Debian has change the way it stores gpg keys. So in Mint/Ubuntu if you add a ppa repository you may see the following warning.
Code:
Key is stored in legacy trusted.gpg Keyring
It will cause no harm to leave it this way but if it's annoying to you. Here's how to fix it.
correct way found here.
Easy way is to just copy the /etc/apt/trusted.gpg folder to the /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d folder.
If you use the easy way you may have to redo it should you add additional ppa's.
Of course it's up to you to make sure the key is actually trusted.

enjoy!
 


You made the same mistake I make. It's 'deprecated', but I read it as 'depreciated' in my head quite often.

I fixed the title for you.

Thanks never could spell ;)

It wasn't until I saw someone correcting someone else that I realized I'd been reading it wrong.
