I tried installing songbird via scripts as per instructions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Songbird after following the instructions i get the message that songbird has been installed but when i click on it in the Sound & Video menu is get an error reading "Could not launch songbird music player, failed to execute child process "Songbird" no such file or directory exists." Heres the terminal output when i try to install, it looks like its not finding any files online
mark@mark-desktop:~$ Desktop/installsongbird.sh

Edit: I wanted to use scripts over getdeb so i can autoupdate songbird once it is installed

your problem lies here,

wget http://www.xs4all.nl/~mgj1/Songbird/64.bit

in that script doesnt exist, so it cant continue, If you really want cutting edge stuff id suggest you use this ppa:
