I am trying to install a Rhythmbox Plugin (File Organizer https://launchpad.net/rb-fileorganizer) on my VPS Ubuntu installation. On the desktop, I would be required to open the folder then double click Install.

On the server, I downloaded the plugin got to the directory but I have no way or 'double clicking' of running the installation file via the terminal.

I have attached an image of what I see. enter image description here

Read the README

less ./README

type q to quit less when done.

I assume you will run the installer

 ./INSTALL

You may need to change the permissions first

chmod a+x ./INSTALL

./INSTALL: line 5: make: command not found –  Oo Nwoye Jan 27 '12 at 22:44

You are going to have to identify and install any and all dependencies. You might want to start with apt-get isntall build-essential - that might fail on your VPS and if so, you will have to install them as needed. apt-get install make –  bodhi.zazen Jan 27 '12 at 22:46

I'm the current maintainer of this plugin.

I just extract releases into the plugin directory, the required path path is:

$(HOME)/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins/fileorganizer-gtk3/

To install from the commandline type:

make install

Or:

make install-gui

The install file is just a shortcut for install-gui. If it's not executable that's a bug I can look at for you.
