Greetings kubuntu-kde3.5-users,

I am attempting to install kde3 on a fresh jaunty cli system.  I have followed the instructions at


Specifically, added to /etc/apt/sources.list:

  deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kde3-maintainers/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
  deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kde3-maintainers/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main


  sudo apt-get update
  wget http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/public.gpg
  sudo apt-key add public.gpg


  sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop-kde3

fails with "Couldn't find package".

To test,

  sudo apt-get install kde3-maintainers-keyring


Searching the repository, I can not find "kubuntu-desktop-kde3" anywhere.  Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the repository?

BTW, I can not use the jaunty-kde3 live cd because it does not support installation on a linux raid1 mirror.
