    Installing DeadBeef music player on Debian

    16th October 2010

    In my previous post on CUE sheet support in Linux music players I mentioned DeaDBeeF. Unfortunately, DeaDBeeF is not yet available as a Debian package.

    Fortunately, Alexey Smirnov (the author of DeaDBeeF) maintains a github repository deadbeef-debian which has simple instructions on installing DeaDBeeF in Debian (citing with minor edits):

    1) download deadbeef from sourceforge (0.4.2 as of the moment of writing)
    2) tar xvf deadbeef-X.Y.Z.tar.bz2
    3) $ cd deadbeef-X.Y.Z/
    4) $ git clone git://github.com/asv/deadbeef-debian.git debian
    5) $ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc -i -I”.git”
    6) (install any dependencies reported by dpkg-checkbuilddeps, wait for the build to finish)
    7) $ sudo dpkg -i ../deadbeef_X.Y.Z-R_yourarch.deb
    8) Enjoy DeaDBeeF!

    Hint: dpkg-buildpackage accepts -jNumJobs option for multi-core/multi-CPU systems.
