Installing Amazon MP3 Downloader

Today, the new Supershirt album “Kunstwerk” was released. I wanted to purchase it on amazon, because they have a Linux client. But I run a 64 bit Ubuntu and the amazon mp3 downloader is only available for 32 bit systems.

There is a simple solution to that. First download the 32 bit client from amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/dmusic/help/amd.html

Install 32 bit libraries:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

Then install it ignoring the architecture:

sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture AmazonMP3DownloaderInstall.deb

Download the getlibs script:

wget http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/getlibs-all.deb 

Fetch missing libraries:

sudo dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb sudo getlibs /usr/bin/amazonmp3
sudo getlibs -p gvfs sudo getlibs -w http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-date-time1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-filesystem1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-iostreams1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-regex1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-signals1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/boost/libboost-thread1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/ubuntu/pool/main/i/icu/libicu40_4.0.1-2ubuntu2_i386.deb 

Make the libs known to the system:

sudo ldconfig

Now you’re good to go!
