I worked no magic on that, Nick. I simply installed U 12.04 via the ChrUbuntu method, then as soon as that was installed I went to Synaptic and installed K 13.04. It was just THERE. I didn't add it, I didn't tweak anything, it was just there.

Have you looked in your Synaptic? And do you have its settings to "Always prefer the highest version"?

Under Settings | Preferences | Distribution | Prefer versions from:, what are your choices? Although I did not fiddle with that at all--I simply did what I always do, set "Always prefer the highest version,"--I'm looking at it now and see both Precise and Raring among its choices. You should, too.
