 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.list

and paste into the file:

 deb potolo main
 deb-src potolo main
 deb core main
 deb-src core main

Sparky unstable repository (optional):

 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky-unstable.list

and paste into the file:

 deb unstable main
 deb-src unstable main

Create a preference file:

 sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences.d/sparky

and paste into the file:

 Package: *
