Install software in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal using the Ubuntu 10.10 Partner repository

Recently I upgraded my OS from Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) to 11.04 (Natty Narwhal). But I am having problem installing some software in the latest version from Ubuntu Software Center. Because the Ubuntu 11.04 Partner repository is not ready properly with all packages. I did a little hack here. After that, I have followed the following steps and installed those software.
Just open terminal and type the following line

gksudo /usr/bin/software-properties-gtk

Click on the “Other software” tab and then click on the “Add” button. Finally, add the following line

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner

Some software may have compatibility issues. But still now I did not face any problem to installing software from Ubuntu 10.10 Partner repository.

  1. i too upgraded to 11.04. what i had to do is create a new 6 gb file system to install it. was there any other way? when i used windows, it was very easy to upgrade from 98 to xp. shoudn’t ubuntu be easier? ( i used a usb stick to boot.)

    1. No. . you don’t need to create any new file system, if the previous version of Ubuntu is already installed in your pc. Then press ALT+F2, type update-manager –d and click Run. Update Manager will come and finally click Upgrade button to continue. That’s it. So, I think it’s more easier in Ubuntu than Windows.
