  1. Thanks for the great article! Please, could you make a ppa for aptus? It would be easier to install it that way.
    I don’t actually know how to use nano, so i used a slightly modified method for step 1, like this: ”
    “sudo thunar” , navigate to ” /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ ” , create an empty file called ” sparky.list “.
    All the other steps went well, just remember to add ” sudo ” in front of all apt commands, or else the execution of the commands might get halted/banned.
