I read other people's blog showing as easily as sudo apt-get install mt-daapd. But when I do that, I got an error message E: unable to locate package mt-daapd.

Could someone point me to the right direction?

I think this is what you want.

sudo apt-get install forked-daapd 

Quick tip

When you're searching for a package like this, try the following command:

apt-cache search keyword-here

So for instance,

apt-cache search daapd

Gives this:

forked-daapd - media server with support for RSP, DAAP, DACP and AirTunes
