HOW TO: Install Boxee on LMDE

Postby bradfrank on Tue Nov 08, 2011 5:38 pm

Using LMDE 201109 with Update Pack 3. There's some flickering when you bring up the menu, but unfortunately I haven't figured out how to resolve that yet. Maybe someone could add their expertise. Anyhow, here's what I did to get it working:

Step 1: install some dependencies, download the Boxee package, and then extract it because some dependencies need to be changed from Ubuntu to Mint/Debian.
Code: Select all
aptitude install libsdl-gfx1.2-4 libtre5 screen xsel libmysqlclient16 libxmlrpc-core-c3
wget http://dl.boxee.tv/boxee-0.9.22.13692.x86_64.modfied.deb
dpkg-deb -x boxee-0.9.22.13692.x86_64.modfied.deb boxee-lmde
dpkg-deb -e boxee-0.9.22.13692.x86_64.modfied.deb boxee-lmde/DEBIAN


Step 2: edit the contents of the package to fix the dependencies. In my case I used Vim since it's so simple.
Code: Select all
vim boxee-lmde/DEBIAN/control
:%s/libxmlrpc-c3/libxmlrpc-core-c3/g
:%s/flashplugin-nonfree/mint-flashplugin-11/g
:wq


Step 3: rebuild the deb file for installation and install.
Code: Select all
dpkg-deb -b boxee-lmde boxee-lmde.deb
dpkg -i boxee-lmde.deb


Hope this helps someone else :)
