MEPIS Linux is a user-friendly operating system based on Debian Stable that “just works”. It comes live, meaning it runs from your CD/DVD or USB drive so you can use it on your Windows or Mac machines without installing. Clicking an icon on your desktop will step you through what is arguably the easiest Linux installer around, and you will be up and going in no time. MEPIS comes with much of the software most users need, and hundreds of additional open-source programs are just a click away--Community members keep you up-to-date. Finally, great user support is available from a complete Manual, a rich Wiki, and a very friendly Forum.

How to update MEPIS signing key

The signing key for the MEPIS package pools expired Jan 22, 2011. Who knew we would be around so long?

The attached file is the new public key that you need in order to install MEPIS packages.

To install the key:

Download the key file into a directory of your choice. You may need to right click on the attachment link and select something like "Save Link As..."

In the download directory, open a terminal as root and run this command: apt-key add MEPISdev.asc

This will install the key on the apt keyring.

Then when you use apt or synaptic, the MEPIS pools should work normally.
