Installing Guayadeque on Ubuntu 13.10/12.10/12.04 and Linux Mint 15/14/13

Guayadeque can be installed using many difference methods. You can install using a PPA (Personal Package Archives) or Compile from the source code directly. But here we are using easiest PPA method under Ubuntu and Mint.

Open a command line by hitting “Ctr+Alt+T” and add the source PPA to your repository.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:anonbeat/guayadeque
$ sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install guayadeque 
# sudo apt-get install guayadeque-svn

The PPA provides two different versions: “guayadeque” and “guayadeque-svn“. The package “guayadeque” is a updated stable release and whereas “guayadeque-svn” package is more updated, but can be more unstable.

If you prefer to install latest Guayadeque, use the “guayadeque-svn” package instead “guayadeque“.

Installing Guayadeque on RHEL/CentOS 6.4/6.3 and Fedora 19/18

Guayadeque is not yet available under RHEL / CentOS and Fedora repositories. So, here we are using source code to install and build.

Open a terminal as root and install following dependencies packages using YUM package manager tool.

# su


Now install the packages required for building from source code.

# yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

Now install needed dependencies packages to build. Run the following command to install those missing packages.

# 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 install and build Guayadeque directly downloading the source code.

# wget http://kaz.dl.sourceforge.net/project/guayadeque/guayadeque/0.3.5/guayadeque-0.3.5.tar.bz2
# tar -xvf guayadeque-0.3.5.tar.bz2
# cd guayadeque-0.3.5
# ./build
# make install

Now you’ve successfully installed and build Guayadeque in your system. To start it go to Applications > Sound & Video > Guayadeque Music Player.

At the first start-up, you will get a screen similar to below.
