as you can see by the scripting above, I cannot install xutils (also xutils-dev). I need them and your repository ppa is not working on server IP: 126.96.36.199 80
This is affecting synaptic and apt-get. It is preventing software updates on other fronts as well. it's been an ONGOING ISSUE FOR MONTHS from looking at trouble tickets started on the ubuntu forum. This is unacceptable.
I am trying to install xutils because I have an HP TC4400 and when I have the screen rotated 90 degrees left or right when the laptop is in tablet mode, I need xutils-dev because xrandr-align needs a dependency from that package to align my stylus with the screen. Please fix this!!!! If this continues, I'm going to have to find another linux distro that works. This is too bad because it is really the only issue I have with Mint. . . . . .
if that ppa is no longer being supported, what is the address for it's replacement repository (if there is one)?
