HandBrake in Ubuntu 13.10

so far there is no release for 13.10 so I use release HandBrake for 13.04. First to add repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases

and change in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/stebbins-handbrake-releases-saucy.list “saucy” to “raring” like that:

deb raring main
then standard installation:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot
