"Things are not much better even on Linux Mint. The distro does have a tool called ‘Software Sources’ where you can add PPAs without having to deal with command line (though one should not fear it). However there is no tool to ‘search’ LaunchPad for available PPAs, you still have to use Google and that’s quite painful.
So the software management still needs some work in Linux Mint, especially in the area of searching and install packages from PPAs. I think a feature which can easily search PPAs and install packages from within that tool will be quite useful for Linux Mint users."
yah this is an annoying pain in the butt and should be implimated.
