Howto: Install SqueezeCenter on Debian / Ubuntu

29 Aug 2010

A Debian SqueezeCenter (formerly known as SlimServer) package distributed by Slim Devices now exists. This package also should work with most Debian-based Linux distributions such as UbuntuMepis or Knoppix. See below for installation instructions for SqueezeCenter.

Add Debian and Ubuntu Repository

To install the latest stable release update your /etc/apt/ configuration using: sudo sh -c "echo \"# SqueezeCenter Repository\" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/squeezecenter.list" sudo sh -c "echo \"deb http://debian.slimdevices.com stable main\" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/squeezecenter.list"

Install squeezeboxserver using aptitude

Ubuntu users may need to add Universe to their sources.list file. There will be two lines near the top of your existing sources.list ending in "universe" that will need to be uncommented. You will also need to run the previous two statements using the "sudo" command to gain root privileges.
