    Lightbulb How to install Amazon MP3 app on 10.04

    So, Amazon MP3 app requires libboost 1.34, which is older than the version now included in Ubuntu. The good news is that the old libboost version can coexist with the new one without any problems. So all you have to do is instsall the old version and you're good to go. Here's how.

    Copy and paste the following text into a terminal window

    Code:
    mkdir old_boost
    cd old_boost
    wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959932/libboost-signals1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959936/libboost-thread1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959922/libboost-iostreams1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959918/libboost-filesystem1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959916/libboost-date-time1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959928/libboost-regex1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/34165098/libicu40_4.0.1-2ubuntu2_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    cd ..
    rm -r old_boost

    Now you can install the Amazon mp3 app normally, following the instructions at:

    however, I had to do getlibs /usr/bin/amazonmp3 in order to get it working (getlibs here)
