Amazon MP3 downloader software

Post by manicmint » Mon Sep 13, 2010 2:52 pm

I am running Linux Mint x86 Gnome, and I am trying to install the amazon MP3 software required to download MP3's from there music store. When I attempt to install the software I receive an error message that says "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libboost-filesystem1.34.1". Is there a way to resolve this error? I have Googled with not much luck. Any help would be great. Cheers!

The libboost package can be installed via the package manager - search the list for libboost-filesystem1.34.1 and it should show up. Once you've installed it, the Amazon package installation should go through.

I am having the same problem. The issue appears to be that the version of libboost in the Mint repositories is a later one (1.40 i think). I'm too much of a noob to figure out a workaround.

I briefly dabbled with dpkg in the terminal and quickly found myslelf out of my depth. I feel that something along the lines of "sudo dpkg -i --force-depends-version amazonmp3.deb" should do the trick, but I still get about 6 dependency errors. Any more experienced people willing to help us out?

I had a similar problem with my 64-bit machine. I discovered there's a plugin for Banshee and it took care of it all. Banshee is available thru Synaptic, of course.

Does anyone know of a solution for LMDE? Installing Ubuntu packages on LMDE can break the system and I really want to get the Amazon downloader installed.

You don't have to install the amazon downloader program to get the mp3 files, it is optional. I have bought several songs from amazon over the last few months without the downloader program. When you purchase the mp3 and get to the page asking you to install the downloader program, look around and there should be a link somewhere to continue without the program, or to download the file directly (I forget just how it is worded).

I know I can snag the songs individually from the Cloud Player but today I got half a dozen free songs and if I could install the Downloader I could have downloaded them all at once instead of one at a time.

OK, I understand now. I've never bought more than one or two at a time, so I wasn't thinking in terms of multiple downloads.

There are often entire free albums available so being able to download en masse is a very handy ability.
