My favourite CD ripper Audex more doesn't seem to be in the repositories for 20.04LTS, and installing the last available version in 16.04 LTS doesn't work because kde-runtime isn't available. Is it available by any other means? thanks!

  • See answer below, it compiles normally on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS with Qt5 and KF5. – N0rbert May 27 at 22:00

The source code on github has mentions of Qt5 and KF5, so I was preliminary wrong about its obsolescence.

We can compile and install it:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake extra-cmake-modules \
qt5-default dh-buildinfo docbook2x libcdparanoia-dev pkg-kde-tools \
qtscript5-dev libqt5x11extras5-dev libkf5plasma-dev \
libkf5completion-dev libkf5crash-dev libkf5iconthemes-dev \
libkf5kcmutils-dev libkf5kio-dev libkf5cddb-dev

cd ~/Downloads
git clone https://github.com/KDE/audex.git
cd audex
cmake .
make -j3

sudo make install

And then use it as usual.
