3.3 The hard way

If your apt system does not support your local file installing, you need to install first some extra packages and their dependencies.

You can check the list of needed packages by using the following command:

 
   dpkg -I openeya-yt-0.9.x-Linux.deb

In ’Depends:’ it is possibile to find the list of the required packages.

To install the required packages (listed with the command above) issue the command: ’sudo apt-get install <pkg1> <pkg2>’ and so on. For example,


 
   sudo apt-get install  libmp3lame0  libvpx6  … 

Then, to install the openEyA (.deb) package anew type the command:

 
     sudo dpkg -i openeya-yt-0.9.x-Linux.deb

An openEyA launcher icon will appear in your Show Applications of Linux Ubuntu Desktop as shown in Fig.2. RESTART YOUR COMPUTER (reboot) before using openEyA!
