It is fairly easy, you add the official Icecast repository (it's like a
The signing key is:

This line will add the official Icecast repository for Ubuntu 12.04 to
your system:
sudo sh -c "echo deb
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dm8tbr/xUbuntu_14.04/ ./

This line will add the GPG signing key to your system:|
