If you've recently tried to install the Amazon MP3 downloader in the hopes of purchasing some music to play on Linux Mint / Isadora, you probably quickly realized it depends on an older version of libboost than what you have installed. It's a very simple fix to make it work, and here's how.
Please note that these instructions are currently only for 32-bit installs.
First the steps, and then the actual commands:
Simple enough, yeah? Here are the details:
wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959932/libboost-signals1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959936/libboost-thread1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959922/libboost-iostreams1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959918/libboost-filesystem1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959916/libboost-date-time1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959928/libboost-regex1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/34165098/libicu40_4.0.1-2ubuntu2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
rm -r tmp
Once completed, simply re-run or download the Amazon MP3 downloader and you're good to go.
Thanks to tvst on the Ubuntu forums for finding the solution to this:
I`d like to express my thanks. You made that so simple!
Brilliant, thanks a lot. *very* useful for a total newbie!
Oops... hold off on that 64-bit part. Those instructions ended up still missing a ton of libraries (even though the instructions are just a few months old, and for Lucid).
Here's the 64-bit instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9145072&postcount=17
Very cool. Would be even better if there were 64-bit instructions for this as well, or (even better) if Amazon recompiled it with newer libraries, or re-set the dependencies to both the older and newer versions of libboost.
