View Full Version : [ubuntu] Darkice Encoder - Install guide?

February 9th, 2009, 02:48 PM

Im pretty much new to the world of ubuntu.

I am trying to set up an internet radio station for my university, and having spoke to a number of other university stations i figured the best way to go about doing this would be to use the Darkice encoder software to send a stream to an Icecast sever. All based on linux.

So i downloaded the darkice.deb file. and i keep getting the message

"Error: Dependancy is not satisfiable: libfaac0"

now this suggests to me that i need to install the libfaac libary. but when i try do so i once again get a similar message.

has anyone out there set up a station on ubuntu using this method?

and if you have could you please explain how to go about setting it up using the easiest method.

note: i've also downloaded the source files for a couple of libraries, but i cannot get my head around how to install these.

any help would be appreciated. :)
