How To Install Kid3 3.3.1 On Ubuntu Systems

As you may know, Kid3 is a free, open-source, cross-platform application for tagging the following music file formats (similar to EasyTag): MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, FLAC, MPC, MP4/AAC, MP2, Speex, TrueAudio, WavPack, WMA, WAV and AIFF.

The latest version available is Kid3 3.3.1, which brings bug-fixes only.

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via the project’s PPA, so installing the tag editing software on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.x and Elementary OS 0.3 Freya systems is easy.

All you need to do is add the PPA to your system and update the local repository index:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ufleisch/kid3
$ sudo apt-get update

Install the kid3 package, for KDE systems:

$ sudo apt-get install kid3

Install the kid3-qt package, for non-KDE systems:

$ sudo apt-get install kid3-qt

Install the kid3-cli package, to get only the command-line version of the software:

$ sudo apt-get install kid3-cli

Optional, to remove either kid3, kid3-qt or kid3-cli, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove kid3*
