I am running Ubuntu 14.04 in my new machine and have a subscription to emusic (because I used it before in my Windows days because of the great selection of classical music). I have used it on my old machine (running older versions of Ubuntu) with some success but am having difficulties doing so now.

I am trying to use EmusicJ but do not/cannot remember how to do so. I have downloaded the program and unzipped it and ran the following command in a terminal:


If I remember correctly, once I go to the emusic site and download my music, the EmucisJ program should open and begin downloading the music through that program but this time it is not and I have already wiped my old box in order to give it to a friend.

Any help is appreciated as I would like to continue with Emusic, but if I cannot get this resolved I will likely have to cancel my subscription and find a better alternative.


  • Which version are you using 32-bit or 64-bit? I believe you downloaded it from here, if not, from where did you download the zip file? – jobin May 28 '14 at 16:54
  • The 64-bit version and yes Jobin I did get it from the link you have in your comment. Thanks. – Michael Dykes May 28 '14 at 17:12
  • Where exactly do you go to download music so that emusicj should start downloading? – jobin May 28 '14 at 17:21
  • Just the emusic website. – Michael Dykes May 28 '14 at 18:12
