Mathias' apt repo

Standard disclaimer

This is an unofficial third-party Debian repository containing packages that are either (a) not currently in Debian, but hopefully will be someday, or (b) are not in Debian, yet I find useful and have packaged to make my life easier.

While the repo metadata is gpg signed, you probably have no reason to trust what I package, so the standard disclaimer applies: these packages may eat your data, unintentionally break your system, etc. Use at your own risk!


I only provide amd64 and i386 binary packages and their corresponding source packages. If you need binary packages for a different architecture, you can fetch the source package and should be able to rebuild locally without any additional work.

Packages are available for the following Debian releases:

As root:

wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/calenhad.gpg
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/calenhad.gpg] bullseye main contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

(Modify the release codename to reflect the version of Debian you are running.)


Since these are unofficial packages, please do not file bugs in the Debian BTS. You can ping me, and I'll help as best as I can.

Packages in official Debian repositories

These are packages that used to be available from my personal repository, but have since been accepted into official Debian repositories. Packages for older versions of Debian will continue to be available here, until official backports are available, or a specific Debian release reaches EOL.

Packages pending inclusion in Debian

lxd5.0.0Linux Containers Daemon
Note -- If you had previously installed my "ugly" LXD packages, it would probably be best to first uninstall them, then install the newer packaging of LXD. I haven't tested that upgrade path, and don't plan to put much work into it.

Other packages available

NOTE: These packages will not be submitted for inclusion in Debian. You may need to enable the "contrib" and "non-free" sections in your sources.list file for this repo.

makemkv1.16.7DVD and Blu-ray transcodercontrib While in BETA, all features supported with free license keys. After beta, only DVDs supported in free edition. Additionally, most underlying functionality is dependent on non-free binaries. An ITP has been filed, so maybe someday these packages will appear in Debian's archive.
