Install Flacon 2.0.1 On Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivatives, Via PPA

Flacon is an open source application, written in C++ and built by using the Qt libraries, that enables the users to extract individual tracks from big audio files. It has support for the following formats (as input files): WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA) and outputs the following: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.

The latest version available is Flacon 2.0.1, which comes with minor changes only, including improved translations:

  • Support CUE files with several FILE tags.
  • Fix: Flacon crashed if audio file was corrupt.
  • Improved stability of the program.
  • The program displays the duration of the tracks.
  • New visual design of tracks selection.
  • Program checks duration of the disk, if disk is shorter than CUE warning mark is displayed.
  • Improves in the texts and messages.
  • Translations updated

Installation instructions:

The latest version of Flacon are available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu and derivative systems is like stealing candy from a baby.

Just add the PPA to your system, update the repository index and install the flacon package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flacon/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install flacon

If you are unhappy with flacon and want to remove it, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove flacon

The instructions should work on all the supported Ubuntu systems and their derivative systems: Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.x, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya.
