Official PPA for Ubuntu 20.12

Post by MacDas »

Description of problem or question:
Anyone managed to install HandBreak on Ubuntu 20.10 yet? There is no official PPA fro either release or git-snapshots for Groovy Gorilla yet and I have to stick to 20.10 (using Ubuntu Studio) until 21.04 comes out. Is that release or snapshot PPA coming anytime soon? Anyone got a clue?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

Code: Select all

root@dvcmda01:~# add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
Repository: 'deb groovy main'
These are the official HandBrake releases for Ubuntu. Official web site

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

After adding this PPA to your list of repositories (see "Adding this PPA to your system" below), you can install the HandBrake gtk gui with the command:

apt-get install handbrake-gtk

And you can install the HandBrake CLI with the command:

apt-get install handbrake-cli

Sorry, I meant to say Ubuntu 20.10 (not .12) but I cannot modify it anymore.
