Guayadeque in Ubuntu Software Center.To install guayadeque in Ubuntu 10.10 and later, you can now use the ubuntu software center! (Not recommended!)
Ubuntu packages.For install instructions please see the Guayadeque Manual
You can download a complete manual in pdf format here
Installing GuayadequeYou can install Guayadeque from different sources. You can install from a PPA (Personal Package Archives), from source code directly, from subversion repository or from your distribution package. We are going to cover only the ones we support :
Installing from PPA :This is the easiest method to install Guayadeque as you only need to add the source of the repository and use your preferred package manager to add the program.
If you want to do it from the command line you just need to do
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:anonbeat/guayadeque sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install guayadeque-svn
Also notice in the ppa there are two versions: guayadeque and guayadeque-svn. The package guayadeque is only updated with stable releases and guayadeque-svn is updated more often but can be more unstable.
Installing from SVN :Why install from svn? Because the svn provides the most up to date version with the latest corrections and improvements made by the developer. This way you can help by testing and providing bug reports to the ongoing project. However, be aware that this is a bleeding-edge version that can sometimes introduce new bugs.
The first step we need to do is install the development tools we will use to build the executable. To do so, open a terminal and type
sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential cmake gettext
Once this have been installed we need to install the development dependencies needed by Guayadeque.To install them you need to run
sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev libtagc0-dev libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libdbus-1-dev libgstreamer0.10-
dev libflac-dev libgpod-dev libindicate-dev
Now we can grab the source code and start building the project. To do so run in the terminal:
cd svn co http://guayadeque.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/guayadeque/Trunk guayadeque cd guayadeque ./build sudo make install
Note: If you want to build a debug version instead of run ./build you need to run ./buildd
From time to time you may want to update the svn code to the latest version in development. To do it you must do :
cd ~/guayadeque svn update ./build sudo make install
If you want to know what changes have been done in the svn repository you can do :
cd ~/guayadeque svn log -l 5
From Source Code :The process to install it from source code is almost the same as the svn method, but you have to obtain the source code from the Guayadeque download page and save it somewhere in your hard disk.
Once the file is on your hard disk you need to decompress the file. For that you can use
tar xfvz guayadeque-x.x.x.tar.gz
Note: Need to replace x.x.x with the correct version.
Before you can build it you need to install the dependencies. To do so just run from your command line
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake gettext sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-dev libtagc0-dev libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libdbus-1-dev libgstreamer
0.10-dev libflac-dev libgpod-dev
Now it is time to compile the code. To do it go to the directory where the source code was extracted and run
./build sudo make install
Installing from Ubuntu Repository :This is the easiest method as you only need to search for the guayadeque package and select install or if you prefer from console run
sudo apt-get install guayadeque
Installing in Arch Linux :Guayadeque is not currently in the official Arch repositories. You have to install it from the AUR by running the following from terminal:
yaourt -S guayadeque
To install from SVN
yaourt -S guayadeque-svn
To remove Guayadeque run this in terminal
yaourt -R guayadeque
yaourt -R guayadeque-svn
You can find Guayadeque in the AUR here
Installing in Gentoo Linux :Guayadeque is available in the main portage tree. For installation you first have to unmask the package.
echo "media-sound/guayadeque ~*" >> /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
Now we are ready for installation:
emerge -av guayadeque
If you want the latest SVN you first have to check if layman is already installed:
emerge -av layman
Now you can add the overlay which contains an ebuild for the SVN-version:
layman -a dauleet
Installation as above by:
emerge -av guayadeque
For IPod support add the appropriate useflag before emerging:
echo "media-sound/guayadeque ipod" >> /etc/portage/package.use
Installing in MagieaGo to the package manager & install
run the below on a terminal
urpmi cmake wxGTK-devel sqlite3-devel libxml2-devel taglib-devel curl-devel libmp4v2-devel libflac-
devel libdbus-1-devel libgstreamer-devel imagemagick libgpod-devel libindicate-devel
download the source tarball
Extract/uncompress the source files
run on a terminal as root
change directories[cd] to wherever the uncompressed files are
once there run
cmake . make make install
Guayadeque is then ready to use
set path to library
Installing in Fedora Linux :Guayadeque is not yet available in the Fedora repositories. You can install Guayadeque by building from source code or via SVN following the instructions at the top of this page. The dependencies listed there use Debian/Ubuntu package names though, so you will first need to install the dependencies using YUM.
Open a terminal and become root by entering the following.
Now install the packages needed for building software from source by entering
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
Now install the rest of the packages needed to build Guayadeque. Copy the following and paste into your terminal.
yum install cmake gcc-c++ gettext wxGTK wxGTK-devel taglib-devel sqlite-devel libcurl-devel gnutls-devel dbus-devel gstreamer-devel flac-devel libgpod-devel subversion subversion-libs
You are now ready to build Guayadeque by following the instructions at the top of this page using SVN or by directly downloading the source code. In either case, skip the section on dependencies. During the build process, you may notice an error complaining that libindicate was not found. This is a package for the Ubuntu message window. Guayadeque will build and run fine on Fedora without it.
Now we have Guayadeque built and installed in our system. To start it go to Applications > Sound & Video > Guayadeque Music Player.
