    I just grabbed the tar.gz from http://getsongbird.com/ then did the following:
    Code:
    cd /opt
    sudo mkdir Songbird/
    sudo chown -R MYUSERNAME:MYUSERNAME Songbird/
    sudo chmod -R g+w Songbird/
    mv ~/Songbird_0.6_linux-i686.tar.gz .
    tar zxvf Songbird_0.6_linux-i686.tar.gz
    cd Songbird
    ./songbird
    I always favour shoving apps like this in /opt/. Ubuntu never use it for anything, so it's just personal preference on my part to use it. You can untar it anywhere you like.

    As it's an alpha, it's quite handy being able to see the errors in the terminal, though I've not had any show stopping issues yet. You can make a launcher in the usual way if you wish too. fyi the songbird icon for the launcher is in:
    Code:
    /opt/Songbird/chrome/icons/default.xpm
    It makes a folder in ~/.songbird2 which contains all your local settings, I've not started hacking around in there yet though.

    Look up "epic fail" in the dictionary, you'll find this quote:

    That's what the script I linked to does.
