The Y PPA Manager is a GUI that can be used to view, add or remove PPA repositories in Ubuntu. If you prefer the shell, the
add-apt-repository program can be used to add or remove PPA repositories. However, there is no program that lists the PPA repositories you have added to your system.
Here is a popular shell script that lists PPA repositories:
#! /bin/sh # listppa Script to get all the PPA installed on a system ready to share for reininstall # From: http://askubuntu.com/questions/148932/how-can-i-get-a-list-of-all-repositories-and-ppas-from-the-command-line for APT in `find /etc/apt/ -name \*.list`; do grep -o "^deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/[a-z0-9\-]\+/[a-z0-9\-]\+" $APT | while read ENTRY ; do USER=`echo $ENTRY | cut -d/ -f4` PPA=`echo $ENTRY | cut -d/ -f5` echo sudo apt-add-repository ppa:$USER/$PPA done done
