Is there any easier way to install Covergloobus 1.6 in Ubuntu 10.10 ? PPA doesnt work , tried to compile it but failed , are there any other ways??
CoverGloobus 1.6 "WOW!" lives up to its name – an awesome application for displaying cover art and lyrics on your desktop
Enter a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) and use:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gloobus-dev/covergloobus sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install covergloobus
Download from the website, extract, enter the directory and run:
./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install
As said before, there is no maverick ppa. But you can use the lucid ppa, if you prefer to install by ppa rather than .deb, and also to be updated: in a terminal run
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Then copy and paste the following at the end of the file:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gloobus-dev/covergloobus/ubuntu lucid main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gloobus-dev/covergloobus/ubuntu lucid main
Finally, update sources and install:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install covergloobus
Addendum to @hhlp: CoverGloobus 1.6 "WOW!" lives up to its name ...
Better use checkinstall, this resutls in a .deb package. If you like to revert to a previous version, be sure to first uninstall the old version (sudo apt-get remove covergloobus):
sudo apt-get install checkinstall ./autogen.sh && checkinstall make install
