Installing Tunesviewer in Ubuntu 16.04
UPDATE: Please install the 1.5.4 package from the home page, which fixes packaging for Ubuntu 16.04
Today is the release day of the new and improved Ubuntu 16.04! As with most releases, it’s not too different, and mostly has numerous under-the-hood updates. If you are noticing an error in downloading and installing the .deb from the home page please follow these simple instructions as a temporary workaround until the problem is resolved:
- Press Ctrl+Alt+T to get a terminal. Copy and ENTER the following commands:
sudo dpkg -i –force-depends ./tunesviewer_1.5.3.deb
- Enter your password to allow install (your password will not be shown). You should see “Setting up Tunesviewer…” and it should finish shortly.
- Click “X” to close the terminal, and find Tunesviewer in the dash, searching for “Tunesviewer”
Now you should no longer see any ‘X-Apple–Tz‘ error dialogs or python-support dependency errors during install.
As a side note, if you want to be able to go directly from the university iTunes page in Firefox, to tunesviewer, just run:
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-mozilla
