Bug Description

Hi - I have added a PPA in the Other Software tab in Software Sources for SuperCollider ( But when I go to the Software Center, the new source doesn't appear in the All Software menu. A search for SuperCollider does not find the correct packages.

There seems to be no way to force a refresh of the Software Center's All Software menu so I that can see the software I want to install. I tried rebooting, I ran sudo apt-get update, and I tried clicking Check in Update Manager, but these had no effect.

I have Ubuntu 11.10, Ubuntu Software Center 5.0.2ubuntu0.1. SuperCollider PPA info can be found at

If this is not a bug, how can I get the Software Center's All Software to display the PPA I added in the Other Software tab in Software Sources?

What is the configuration change that will allow a new source to appear in the All Software menu?
