HTPC Part 3a – Installing Boxee on Ubuntu 9.10 and OSX86 10.5.8

Boxee LogoAt the moment with Boxee’s beta, there’s no option or download for the latest  version of Ubuntu (9.10). The below was pinched online somewhere, but I lost the link!.

You can still install it on your 9.10 Karmic using its Jaunty repository; deb http://apt.boxee.tv jaunty main – copy and paste in your /etc/apt/sources.list (System -> Administration -> Software Sources).

Grab and install these 3 dependencies

before installing with sudo apt-get install boxee – from the command-line. This is enough to get Boxee up and running roughly – whilst waiting for the official repository for Ubuntu Karmic.
