    so, you are saying that it actually plays itunes-drm mp3 files? i thought apple didn't allow others to use their "fairplay" drm? i don't have any drm'ed files, so it's not like i actually care , but i'm very curious!
    Wooo, don't qoute me on that. I just read something about that on the web site. Something about it replaces iTunes, here it is from the horses mouth:
    Anything, Anywhere
    Use an iPod, USB device
    Play tracks from iTunes
    Store, Yahoo! Unlimited
    from: http://www.songbirdnest.com/ I only play mp3's so I really don't know about all that stuff. You may search the forums and see if it is worth while or not to the Ubuntu community. I can't really say as I don't get into all that stuff so much. I just play mp3's from my computer.

    No problem! Here is the script to install the Songbird:

    Songbird 0.2.5 Developer Preview

    Yes, the Debian folk thought Mozilla's branding licenses were too restrictive, so they created Iceweasel (Firefox) and Iceape (Seamonkey).

    yea, i've heard of the iceweasel thing, but not iceape

    but afaik, the branding problems only arise when the redistributor makes changes to the codebase, and thus potentially compromises product quality. if the .deb were a simple packaging into a .deb, without any changes to the code, a rebranding would not be required. so this then raises the question of what kind of changes they have made to seamonkey before packaging it into a .deb...

    Erm, I was running sonbird as an open source alternative to Itunes for the Macintosh at my work, and I tried to use the previous Itunes library and the Mp3s would not play. I didn't investigate the problem very deeply, but I just figured it was DRM. Yuck!

    like a lot of other people, i would prefer to use seamonkey that FF, FF runs really slow.....atleast thats how i find it, better to install seamonkey, but i think it would be irrelevant to create a script, considering you can download it here: http://download.mozilla.org/?product...nux&lang=en-US
    just download into your home directory, then launch nautilus as root, or use the nautilus root script from automatix, extract the archive, locate the seamonkey-installer file, and run it, ensuring you are still running nautilus as root, it will install into /usr/local/seamonkey.

    to run it use this command: /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey
    it's all prettty simple really
    nearly as simple as using synaptic or a script, considering you would need to find a repo that contains it, then add it to sources.list
    i guess the only reason we would need to script it would be for a bit of polish to the OS

    heh well, since the seamonkey install script already exists at this point, the question is moot...
    but thanks for your comment, anyway.
