This was a challenge!
Download the compressed tar file from this website
Extract the downloaded file into a sub-folder in you Downloads folder called sheetmaker.
Now install the following perl modules:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libgtk2-perl libimdb-film-perl libxml-bare-perl perlmagick libfile-finder-perl libimage-exiftool-perl libxml-tokeparser-perl libxml-treepp-perl
Run a test to check that all perl modules have been installed
It should say one more module "XML::RPC" needs to be installed. If there are any more modules to be installed - look for them in synaptic manager.
The last module "XML::RPC" isnt available in Ubuntu. N.B. there is a similar named package
libxml-rpc-perl but this is the "RPC::XML" library.
Run the following:
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::RPC'
Press enter for ALL questions asked -
If the final question asked is to 'enter the URL of the CPAN mirror' then enter the value
It should now just say that mediainfo needs to be installed. You install this by:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shiki/mediainfo
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mediainfo
now check that starting the application works -
Note - it might complain of missing templates - these can be downloaded from the website you linked to.
Finally - finish off by creating a desktop launcher
create a text file call
sheetlaunch.sh with the following contents:
change the permissions so that is launches
chmod +x sheetlaunch.sh
now right click the desktop and create a launcher with the command line
Click on the default icon and navigate to the sheetmaker folder to use the correct icon.
homefolder for your home folder name
if you now move the launcher to the folder
.local/share/applications then nattys' Dash will pick it up in its search.
