All the ppa's I used are for natty or older. How can I install sopcast in oneiric? I prefer through a ppa if it exists.

Should I try the ppa for natty? Will it work? I mean the ppa from here

Usually I install it from Ubuntu tweak. But now Ubuntu tweak is in alpha for oneiric, with a new interface. I couldn't find it there, or any other software. Explain that?

  • Also you can try TV Maxe is to similar Sopcast, here is the link. Here you will find info about "INSTALL SOPCAST PLAYER IN UBUNTU 11.10 ONEIRIC OCELOT". Have fun!
