    I started synaptic package management and reloaded the package information. Then I installed the package software-properties-gtk and its dependencies. In the 'Settings' menu I selected 'Repositories' and got a dialog window with five tabs. One tab is called 'Authentication' and allows you to import a key file.

    Did that and it works. Thanks.
    Why is this not included by default in the knoppix cd?
