How To Install Miro 6 On Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail And Linux Mint 15 Olivia

In this article I will show you how to install Miro 6 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail and Linux Mint 15 Olivia. The version available in the default repositories of the latest Ubuntu systems is Miro 4, which is really outdated, so if we want Miro 6, we have to use the Ubuntu 12.04/12.10 repository and do some tweaking.

Follow this steps exactly for a successful installation:

1. Download and install libtorrent-rasterbar6, to fix the dependency issues.

For 32 bit systems:

$ wget -c https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libtorrent-rasterbar6_0.16.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i libtorrent-rasterbar6_0.16.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

For 64 bit systems:

$ wget -c https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libtorrent-rasterbar6_0.16.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i libtorrent-rasterbar6_0.16.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

2. Add the Miro 6 Precise repository:

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pcf/miro-releases/ubuntu precise main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pcf/miro-releases/ubuntu precise main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

3. Update the system:

$ sudo apt-get update

4. Install Miro 6:

$ sudo apt-get install miro

    Thank you for this helpful series of how-to’s regarding Miro 6.0 on later Ubuntu releases. They have worked for me twice in the past.

    Now that *buntu is at 14.04, there is a new conundrum. Libtorrent-rasterbar has a dependency that is no longer in the 14.04 repository. From memory it’s called libboost-system1.0.49 (or close). So while Miro 4.04 is still installable, getting to 6.0 is now tougher yet.

    Any thoughts? Of course I’ll happily assist on a more detailed level should you decide to pursue this.

      hey Tom. I have tried to install Miro 6 on Ubuntu 14.04 via the precise repository, but i get the unmet dependency you have also mentioned.

      I will try again and write a dedicated article for Trusty, if I manage to find a solution.
