Description

I am using Ubuntu 18.04, and I see there is a webupd8 PPA with the latest version 3.10.1, but the webupd8 PPA updates a lot of other programs, not only Audacious.

I like to keep check on things on my computer, so it would be really great if the team behind Audacious created a .deb-file for easy Ubuntu and Debian installation, is this possible?

Alternatively you could offer a dedicated PPA for the latest Audacious for Linux.

You can use a PPA without installing/updating all the other packages from it. Enable the PPA, install Audacious, and then disable it again.

Thanks John, that worked perfectly!

Perhaps the link from the Download page (https://audacious-media-player.org/download) could be updated to link to https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8?

I used these commands to install Audacious version 3.10:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install audacious
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update

  • Target version deleted (3.10.1)
  • Status changed from New to Closed

Sure, I updated the PPA link to point directly to Launchpad rather than the blog search page.

Thanks for updating the link, I think that's more useful. And thanks a lot for maintaining Audacious, it's the best music player for Ubuntu.
