Hi all!

Recently I've installed the Signal & Riot desktop client on Trisquel 8 via their respective installation instructions (pasted in here for reference).

Signal:
$ curl -s https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt install signal-desktop

Riot:
$ sudo apt install -y lsb-release wget apt-transport-https
$ sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/riot-im-archive-keyring.gpg https://packages.riot.im/debian/riot-im-archive-keyring.gpg
$ echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/riot-im-archive-keyring.gpg] https://packages.riot.im/debian/ $(lsb_release -cs) main" |
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/riot-im.list
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install riot-web

In both cases, the installation went through and the clients work fine.

The curious thing, however, is that the Riot repo does not appear in the "Software & Updates" app in the "Other Software" tab whereas Signal's does.

What's the reason for that?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Oh, forgot to mention that I've replaced the

$(lsb_release -cs)

in the Riot installation process with

xenial

Ok - issue kind of resolved:

The

[signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/riot-im-archive-keyring.gpg]

in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/riot-im.list was the culprit.

Removing this and importing the .gpg key in the "Authentification" tab made the riot repo also appear in "Software & Updates" > "Other Software".
