    Cool EasyTAG-2.2.0

    EDIT (again)If you don't want to compile EasyTAG yourself, there's a PPA here ---> https://launchpad.net/~amigadave/+ar...series_filter=

    I'm not going to update this thread any more now that PPA is available.


    EDIT

    EasyTAG-2.2.2 was released on May 9 2014
    I've edited the post below from 2.2.0 to 2.2.2.
    The procedure is the same.

    Hi
    EasyTAG in the Ubuntu-14.04 repo is version 2.1.10.
    But version 2.2.2 has just been released.
    It's easy enough to compile.
    These commands worked OK for me with 32-bit *buntu-14.04...

    Install some packages.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; \
    sudo apt-get -y install build-essential checkinstall; \
    sudo apt-get -y build-dep easytag; \
    sudo apt-get -y install libopus-dev libopusfile-dev
    Make a build folder and go there.
    Code:
    cd ~/; sudo rm -rf easytag_build; mkdir easytag_build; cd easytag_build
    Download and configure.
    Code:
    wget download.gnome.org/sources/easytag/2.2/easytag-2.2.2.tar.xz -qO- | tar -xJ; cd easytag-*; ./configure
    Results should look something like this...

    Configuration for EasyTAG 2.2.2 :
    --------------------------------
    MP3 file support .......... : yes
    ID3v2.3 tags support .... : yes (id3lib-3.8.3)
    Ogg Vorbis file support . : yes
    Ogg Speex file support ..: yes
    Ogg Opus file support ... : yes
    FLAC file support ......... : yes
    MP4 file support .......... : yes
    WavPack support ......... : yes
    NLS/gettext ................ : yes
    Tests during make check .: yes
    Install prefix ..........: /usr/local

    If it's OK, go ahead...

    Build and install.
    Code:
    make; \
    sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" --pkgname easytag \
    --pkgversion 2.2.2 \
    --backup=no --fstrans=no --default; sudo ldconfig
    Code:
    easytag --version
    EasyTAG 2.2.2

    Re: EasyTAG-2.2.0

    Great news about the new release! I usually head for easyTAG when commandline tagging is doing my head in . And as you have mentioned looks like Trusty has just missed out...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    For me, and I am not a huge user of either Puddletag or EasyTag, both are pretty much the same. Simply that I am more used to EasyTAG and by nature a little too lazy to investigate Puddletag in greater depth .
