In this article I will show you how to install FileBot 4.1 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pinguy OS, LXLE, Linux Lite, Peppermint, Deepin, Debian, Kwheezy, Crunchbang and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any PPA, we have to download the deb package from the official site and install it via dpkg/gdebi (I prefer Gdebi because it also manages the dependencies). Follow the instructions for your architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

How to install FileBot 4.1 on 32 bit Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/filebot/files/filebot/FileBot_4.1/filebot_4.1_i386.deb
$ sudo gdebi filebot_4.1_i386.deb

Due to the fact that filebot was installed by root, we have to change the ownership from its config file:

$ sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.filebot/

How to install FileBot 4.1 on 64 bit Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/filebot/files/filebot/FileBot_4.1/filebot_4.1_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi filebot_4.1_amd64.deb

Due to the fact that filebot was installed by root, we have to change the ownership from it’s config file:

$ sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.filebot/

Optional, to remove filebot, from both 32 bit and 64 bit systems, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove filebot

    You don’t have to hardcode the version into your cmdline calls, and since dpkg is installed by default it’s probably a good idea to use that instead.
