I think that is an Ubuntu or derivative specific file. The ppa repositories are like their user base contributions.

I don't think Debian even has ppa, and when you add one to your apt sources, you usually break your system real quick.

Usually you can go to the ppa directly and download the file you need. If it's just a bin file to communicate with a phone, you might be ok running it.
