Install Boxee - Ubuntu Natty 11.04

Natty release should be out soon, until then:

Download Ubuntu .deb from:

Open Terminal in the download dir

sudo dpkg-deb -x boxee-REV-version-HERE.modfied.deb boxee

( current build as of this post: boxee- )

sudo dpkg-deb --control boxee-REV-version-HERE.modfied.deb boxee/DEBIAN

sudo nano boxee/DEBIAN/control

Locate:    libxmlrpc-c3

Change to [append -0]:    libxmlrpc-c3-0

Save changes and exit nano ( any txt editor can be used )

sudo dpkg -b boxee boxee-MY-WORKING-PKG.deb

( "boxee-MY-WORKING-PKG" can be named anything you like followed by ".deb" )

sudo apt-get update

sudo dpkg -i boxee-MY-WORKING-PKG.deb

( this will produce dep. errors )

sudo apt-get -f install

( this will fix the broken deps )

sudo aptitude safe-upgrade -y
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean

sudo chown -R yourUSERname:YOURuserNAME /home/yourUSERnameHERE
