I'm trying to install Nitroshare app, but always get the same issue

Here is what Terminal says:

alex@satellite:~$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:george-edison55/nitroshare
Cannot add PPA: ''This PPA does not support focal''.

I've tried to do next steps, according to this

And I got this result:

alex@satellite:~$ sudo apt update

I've tried to do it as being said on the site

Here is my system:

    The repo you want to add do not support your version of OS Jan 13, 2022 at 10:31
  • Thanks for response! How can I find it by myself? Do I have another option to install this app?

  • You can try to install/add the repo by hand. And then try to install the packages you need. Jan 13, 2022 at 10:53

The PPA is discontinued, but nitroshare is available in Bionic archives. First remove the PPA.

sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:george-edison55/nitroshare

Then download and install nitroshare.

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/n/nitroshare/nitroshare_0.3.3-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt install ./nitroshare_0.3.3-1_amd64.deb

You don't need to use a third party repository to install cmake-3. cmake-3 is available from Ubuntu Focal repositories (and Debian).

sudo apt install cmake 
sudo apt install  build-essential libgtk2.0-dev libappindicator-dev libnotify-dev
git clone https://github.com/nitroshare/nitroshare-desktop.git
cd nitroshare*
mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..
make
./out/bin/nitroshare-ui
0

that was what I was gonna say, nitroshares dependancies are still in the default repos but I don't know how long this will last, I know I can't install it on debian for instance
