PPA repositories for Ubuntu 16.04

Here are a few repositories that I found useful for recent versions of programs on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Using them allow one to have stable recent versions of R, LibreOffice, MS Visual Studio, NodeJS or Zotero stand-alone.

deb https://mirror.ibcp.fr/pub/CRAN/bin/linux/ubuntu xenial/ for R

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/thunderbird-next/ubuntu xenial main for Thunderbird

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ne0sight/chrome-gnome-shell/ubuntu xenial main for GNOME extension shell

deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/vscode stable main for VisualStudio

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/neovim-ppa/stable/ubuntu xenial main for NEOVIM

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/numix/ppa/ubuntu xenial main for NUMIX

deb https://deb.nodesource.com/node_5.x xenial main for NODEJS

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/dhor/myway/ubuntu xenial main for XNVIEW and other GRAPHICS

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu xenial main for KUBUNTU

deb http://APT.spideroak.com/ubuntu-spideroak-hardy/ release restricted for SPIDEROAK

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu xenial main for LIBREOFFICE

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/smathot/cogscinl/ubuntu xenial main for ZOTERO standalone

deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases) for OPERA

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/inkscape.dev/stable/ubuntu xenial main for INKSCAPE

The list was obtained with a simple command line (from https://askubuntu.com/questions/148932/how-can-i-get-a-list-of-all-repositories-and-ppas-from-the-command-line-into-an):

grep -r --include '*.list' '^deb ' /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

To add any of the PPAs to the list of available software sources:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:<name of the PPA>

Installing a deb package can also automatically add a repository to the list. Some repositories are more complicated (example for Opera browser):

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free'
wget -qO- https://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
