Getting Started

The Prebuilt-MPR currently supports and publishes packages for the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 20.04
  • Debian 11

If you are on a different distribution/release, you can substitute the $(lsb_release -cs) command below with either focal or bullseye for Ubuntu 20.04 and Debian 11 respectively. Note that you may get broken packages though.

Setting up the repository

Run the following to set up the APT repository on your system:

curl -q '' | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/prebuilt-mpr-archive-keyring.gpg 1> /dev/null
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/prebuilt-mpr-archive-keyring.gpg] prebuilt-mpr $(lsb_release -cs)" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/prebuilt-mpr.list
sudo apt update

You can then proceed with installing packages from the Prebuilt-MPR.

Not all packages on the MPR are available through the Prebuilt-MPR. You can get a current list of available packages at
