How to install boxee on Ubuntu?
« on: January 10, 2010, 08:56:09 AM »
Yes I'm back already. LOL

Please help someone :)

I'm running Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 32 bit.

I followed the instructions on Boxee.com

You have selected to download Boxee for Ubuntu Linux 8.10
To download Boxee for Linux:
1 Go to System > Administration > Software Sources.
2 In Sources Software dialogue, select Third-Party Software tab, click Add, and enter:
for Intrepid: deb http://apt.boxee.tv intrepid main
for Jaunty: deb http://apt.boxee.tv jaunty main
3After closing this dialogue you can either use Synaptics and select Boxee for download, or use a terminal window, and enter sudo apt-get install boxee.

To run Boxee, Applications > Sound & Video > Boxee

But this is what it shows in my terminal

speedy@ubuntu:~$ deb http://apt.boxee.tv jaunty main
No command 'deb' found, did you mean:
 Command 'debc' from package 'devscripts' (main)
 Command 'derb' from package 'libicu-dev' (main)
 Command 'dab' from package 'bsdgames' (universe)
 Command 'debi' from package 'devscripts' (main)

Read step 1 and 2 more carefully. You should enter deb http://apt.boxee.tv intrepid main in the application System > Administration > Software Sources

To run boxee on this version of Ubuntu I think you need to edit one of the txt files in the program. This guide will show you how to make the edit and repackage boxee.deb into a new edited .deb file. http://www.ubuntulinuxguide.com/boxeehack.htm
