every time I added a screenshot-tool PPA, always fail?

Every time I would install the screenshot tool and add PPA, always fail?

The screenshot-tool was moved to the elementary's Launchpad, so what you should execute if you want the latest version is:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade screenshot-tool
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:elementary-os/daily

The installation instructions are outdated. I hope that @Ravan is going to manage to get them fixed by contacting Fabio.

  • good information +1 =)

After a little research and with the help of my Ask Ubuntu friends,

It is clear that there is no PPA with that name.(at present)

The OP might have hidden/deleted the PPA.

After compile (by my AU friend)

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fabiozaramella/screenshot-tool 
[sudo] password for : 
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~fabiozaramella/ubuntu/screenshot-tool'. 
The user named '~fabiozaramella' has no PPA named 'ubuntu/screenshot-tool' 

I have sent a mail to the fabiozaramella, waiting for reply

  • -1, why? please re-read the question. the OP asking about his error message, I gave clarity for that--

This could be coused by a lot of things.

  • Your firewall might be blocking it (not really likely)
  • You might have no internet connection
  • The repository might be deleted or renamed (or it might just not exists)
