Install FileBot on Ubuntu

Installation instructions:

Because it only works with Oracle Java 8, you have to remove openjdk, add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index, install java8, download filebot and instal the filebot package.

Follow the instructions for your system’s architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

How to install FileBot on 32 bit Ubuntu systems:

$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/filebot/files/filebot/FileBot_4.6.1/filebot_4.6.1_i386.deb -O filebot_i386.deb
$ sudo gdebi filebot_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 on 64 bit Ubuntu systems:

$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
$ sudo apt-get update

$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/filebot/files/filebot/FileBot_4.6.1/filebot_4.6.1_amd64.deb -O filebot_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi filebot_amd64.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/

The installation instructions should work on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint 6, Peppermint 5, LXLE 14.04 and Linux Lite 2.
