Import GPG signing key

The best way to install GPG key is to manually download and install package trinity-keyring. The advantage is that this method of installation is not dependent on the availability of the key server. Another advantage is that the key is not integrated into the global apt keyring, but is installed as a separate file:

wget http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity/deb/trinity-keyring.deb
sudo dpkg -i trinity-keyring.deb
