    How to install get-iplayer BBC iplayer GUI from Arch AUR in Ubuntu

    I found this very nice GUI for get-iplayer in the Arch AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=59166

    And a youtube demo of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zruD...ature=youtu.be

    Question: How can I install this in Ubuntu?

    No, I'm still using the command line for get-iplayer.

    deb here designed by mr Bob


    download deb file and double click it will install through Ubuntu Software Centre


    or place in your home folder and in terminal

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i giPlayer.deb




    then find under applications/sound and video

    No, doesn't seem to be working for me either.

    Does the rtmpdump thing that grabs the HD versions work as well?

    ok guys and sorry corrected it now and in earlier post

    [ altho you could have got there following the second link :]]


    also on newer ubuntu versions it will install fine but tell you you have broken packages


    no sweat there


    go to synaptic after it is installed [will work fine anyway] and click on edit/fix broken packages/apply

    then all good; it is basic as a gui but clear and efficient
