If you’d like to install Sparky APTus on Debian, Ubuntu or their spins, simply do:
1. Open a text console and add Sparky repository:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.list
2. Add the text to the file:
deb main
3. Get Sparky public key:
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
4. Refresh package list:
sudo apt-get update
5. Install it:
sudo apt-get install sparky-aptus
6. Check is everything ok:
sudo apt-get install -f
That’s all, close the text console and run Sparky APTus from Menu-> System.

  1. On the one hand, APTus is Sparky’s main attraction, so being able to use it on other distros makes me less likely to use Sparky. On the other hand, the fact that Sparky provides such a great tool that can be used on other distros, makes Sparky very likeable.

    Are there any known compatibility issues using APTus and the Sparky repo on other Debian-/Ubuntu-based distros?

    If you use APTus outside of Sparky, have you remembered to donate to Sparky for their great tool? 😉

  2. 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.
