Try to install amazonmp3 on a ubuntu desktop 64bit edition. Amazon only supports Ubuntu 8.10 32Bit version. I googled around to see if there was a way to install 32 bit packages under 64 bit Ubuntu, I ran into (using getlibs).

But there are some missing libs

I would advise you to take a look at this Ubuntu Forums posting - though it is written for 10.04.

However there are alternatives to installing this package from Amazon: there are alternatives to the Amazon MP3 Downloader. Pymazon is an option, and there is also now a Banshee extension to do the job.

Now amazonmp3 is installed (Installing these missing dependencies manually through getlibs will make them available to the amazonmp3 binary) - but I will try the alternatives – sdu Oct 27 '10 at 19:54
Seriously, Banshee with the Amazon extension is the way of least pain. – postfuturist Nov 23 '10 at 3:00

Install Clamz from the Ubuntu Software Center

Just went to the "Ubuntu Software Center" and looked up amazon and noticed there was a program called "Clamz" says that it's for downloading mp3 from amazon.

what I did

  1. Installed clamz Install clamz from the Ubuntu Software Store
  2. Purchased the album I wanted from Amazons site - One click download link
  3. Amazon sent me a link with an amz extension
  4. Opened the amz file and a terminal window opened and I was downloading

Not the pretties, but really awesome!
