Ubuntu 14.10 repository published

Hi there GetDeb users,

sorry for the delay Ubuntu 14.10 is out there for almost a week already.
I hope all your updates were fine !

It took me a while to create the GetDeb repository for the new release but finally:
It is done !

Due to the policy always the latest release (14.10) and latest LTS release (14.04) will be supported.

Have fun and if you would like to support as a donation, subscription or mirror server is greatly appreciated.

I hope you are fine and stay as you are !

Best regards
Christoph Korn

Repositories for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS published

The new +GetDeb and +PlayDeb repositories for the new Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release are now published.
Per policy only Ubuntu 14.04 will be supported by +GetDeb and +PlayDeb because it is both the latest release and the latest LTS release.
When Ubuntu 14.10 is published it will be supported together with 14.04.

Enjoy !

Daily and monthly top 25 download statistics

As promised there are now some download statistics on the site.
You can see the top 25 apps monthly and daily (updated once an hour).
The download numbers contain all versions of the app on all Ubuntu releases.
If you want to have more details you can click on an app and see the
downloads per version on the app's site.
If the download numbers in the statistic are higher than on the app's site
it is because the statistics may also include older versions which you
will not see any more on the app's site for the specific Ubuntu release.

Download count per version

On the site there are now download counts for each published version of an application. The download count is updated every hour so don't be confused if you install an application and the download count is not incremented immediately.
The download count in the list is for this specific version and on the application's page you can see the download for each version. The download counts include every Ubuntu version the application version is published for.

In the near future there should also be a TOP 10 of the most downloaded applications in the last month.

GetDeb downtime and new server coming up

Hello GetDeb users,

as you all have surely noticed, the sites, as well as the repository itself cannot be reached reliably for the last few days.
This is because on our current server the bandwidth provider has problems with packet loss and does not yet know how to fix this.
Because of that there is little we can do to resolve the issue.

Fortunately, the GetDeb and PlayDeb projects are supported recurrently with an amount of 200€ per month. And this only by one incredibly amazing benefactor whom we cannot thank enough for this.

So we decided to use the donation to take the server to a new home with hopefully a more reliable bandwidth provider.

Because of this expect a few more downtime the next days while we move things to the new provider.

Sorry for the inconveniences.

Have a nice week !

GetDeb and PlayDeb subscriptions via PayPal


since now you can sponsor GetDeb and PlayDeb by subscribing to it via PayPal.
You can freely choose the amount you want to spend per month.
This will allow you to get your name, a link and a logo to be shown on the sponsors page and the front page of both and .
We are hoping that GetDeb and PlayDeb will finance themselves someday and are targeting for 200€ per month so we can pay the servers and to upgrade the amount of bandwith for the servers.
You can still make one time donations with paypal but won't get listed on the sponsors site this way.
So instead of donating 10€ once I would set up a subscription about 5€ and cancel it after two months ;)

We hope that our hope will come true and thank every sponsor in advance for supporting us.

You guys are awesome ;)
