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:

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:


Fetch missing libraries:

sudo dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb sudo getlibs /usr/bin/amazonmp3
sudo getlibs -p gvfs sudo getlibs -w 

Make the libs known to the system:

sudo ldconfig

Now you’re good to go!
