I tried to update brltty adding the line you said to /etc/apt/sources.list, 
but brltty 3.9 doesn't appear.
With my browser, I went to, 
but brltty doesn't appear there.

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards

Hash: SHA1

Hi all
I am writing to request that all of you who have braille displays, 
particularly if your display is USB, test an updated BrlTTY package. I've 
fixed one or two issues in this package, and would like to get user testing 
before I put it into hardy. I've made it available for both gutsy and hardy, 
to get wider testing. Add one of the following lines to your 
/etc/apt/sources.list file to get the newer BrlTTY.

gutsy: gutsy main
hardy: hardy main

One issue that I am pretty sure I have resolved, is the issue whereh the 
configuration file gets overwritten at every boot. Please in particular see 
if this issue is resolved for you.

Please give this package a good test with your display, and let me know if 
you find any issues. This is the best time to get BrlTTY fixed up as well as 
is possible for Ubuntu hardy, and the more issues we can get fixed now, the 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
