open your terminal do this



tar -xvf minitube-linux.tar.gz
      cd minitube/
      chmod +x minitube

If you want to place it in desktop then do this also

ln minitube ~/Desktop

Then every time you can access it easily from desktop .

You Tube made changes and that broke Minitube. Minitube has been updated. OMG! Ubuntu has the article.
