Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Transmageddon is an open-source tool for converting audio and video files, based on GStreamer. It is a very straight forward application and very easy to use, via its intuitive interface.
The latest version available is Transmageddon 1.5, which has been recently released, coming with minor changes only. Also worth mentioning, it will be included in the default repositories of Fedora 21.
In this article I will show you how to install Transmageddon on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn and derivative systems.
Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to install the required dependencies, download the transmageddon archive, extract it and perform an installation from sources. Like this:
$ sudo apt-get build-dep transmageddon
$ wget http://www.linuxrising.org/files/transmageddon-1.5.tar.xz
$ tar -xJvf transmageddon-1.3.tar.xz
$ cd transmageddon-1.5/
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/transmageddon
$ sudo make install
$ sudo ln -s /opt/transmageddon /usr/bin/transmageddon
Optional, to remove transmageddon, do:
$ sudo rm -r /opt/transmageddon /usr/bin/transmageddon
