  • Question, not related to S.gpg-agent.browser Why are you adding an Ubuntu PPA on a Debian stretch machine? – Bigon Jul 4 '17 at 17:01
  • As I mentioned I need to add repository for vim 8 with python support – Sathish Kumar Jul 5 '17 at 2:00
  • Adding ubuntu repositories to debian doesn't sound like a good idea. Doesn't vim-gtk/vim-gtk3 have python support enabled? It at least link against libpython – Bigon Jul 7 '17 at 11:20
  • PPAs are not compatible with Debian, only with Ubuntu and its derivatives like Mint. You can get some to work with some effort, but it's not advisable, especially for someone new to Linux. – Mikl Apr 8 at 19:19
