Blobfolio Apt Repository

This is a small package repository maintained by Blobfolio, LLC, containing various odds and ends that we find useful. No more, no less. Haha.

Note that most packages have a baseline of x86-64-v3 so will not work on old hardware.

Add the Apt Source.

This repository works just like any other third-party repository. To add it to your system, simply follow the instructions below for your distribution.

Debian 12.0 Bookworm

# Architecture: amd64
wget -qO- https://apt.blobfolio.com/assets/bookworm_amd64.sources | \
    sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/apt.blobfolio.com.sources >/dev/null

Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish

# Architecture: amd64

The Finish Line!

As with any change to your apt sources, you'll need to run a quick update to refresh it:

sudo apt-get update

After that, you're free to install everything and anything you want!

sudo apt-get install […]

About Package Verification.

The integrity of packages in this repository can be verified at either the repository level — as apt does automatically — or package-by-package, using dpkg-sig.

The package-by-package route comes with two prerequisites:

# Add the public key to *your* personal GPG keyring.
wget -qO- https://apt.blobfolio.com/assets/public.asc | gpg --import

# Install dpkg-sig, if you don't already have it:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dpkg-sig

After that, you can manually verify a downloaded package by running:

dpkg-sig -c /path/to/some-file.deb
