How to install Enna Media Center in Ubuntu 9.10
Enna is a lightweight XBMC concurrent, developped by the GeeXboX team as its distribution brand new user interface. Enna allows you to listen to your favorite music, watch your movies and TV shows, browse through your personnal photos and read comics and mangas from over the Internet.
Available as a standalone application for any modern GNU/Linux distribution, it has already been packaged for Ubuntu 9.10 users.
Open the terminal from Applications menu -> Accessories -> Terminal and run the following commands
For Ubuntu Karmic Users:
Edit /etc/apt/sources.list file
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Add the following lines
deb http://packages.geexbox.org/ karmic main
Update the source list
sudo apt-get update
Install Enna using the following command:
sudo apt-get install enna
I’m a newbie. Can I get the dummies instructions?
Do I do this in the terminal?
Yup, you do this in the terminal. Whenever you see instructions that start with “sudo” you can be 99.99% sure it is something to be run via terminal.
Hi, I followed the instructions also from the Enna site, and I get an erroro from mplayer, it seems that the libraries are missed, strange, because mplayer functions well…..somebody has my same problem?
This isn’t working on 64-bit. Nothing happens when I open it and if I run it from the terminal, I get a bunch of warnings and an error:
[libplayer/mplayer] Err: error during MPlayer initialization
[Enna] [mediaplayer.c:936] Err: Mediaplayer initialization
It’s the same errorr I get when I start Enna from terminal……I want to use it primarly because I live in Enna, a city in the middle of Sicily, really awesome show it to my friends!
OK good so I’m not the only having issues. I wonder if I will ever get this to work. Sometimes I wish i was geeker.
After installing the program in terminal, nothing happens when i tried to click on the program icon. I installed as the instruction stated. I have a 32-bit, Ubuntu 9.10
Worked fine for me in 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10. I did not really like it though but thanks for the tutorial, I’ll have to keep an eye out for future updates maybe it will get better with time.
Speedy, here ( http://pastebin.com/f567b974 ) is a 1-line version:
echo “deb http://packages.geexbox.org/ karmic main” >> ~/geexbox.enna.list && sudo mv ~/geexbox.enna.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y –force-yes install enna
Add this repository
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/rvm/mplayer/ubuntu karmic main
than upgrade mplayer and the and the error [Enna] [mediaplayer.c:936] Err: Mediaplayer initialization
I got it to work. For some reason my MPlayer Media Player was not working so i did an upgrade on the MPlayer and got to work. Then install Enna and now it is working.
Thanks Patrick, now it works! ^_^
Hi, I’m from france and want to use Enna on my Karmic but I have the same issue “[Enna] [mediaplayer.c:936] Err: Mediaplayer initialization” when I launch this application. I had already update mplayer and it’s the same error ! Please help !
You really should have messed up your MPlayer installation. If “mplayer” starts well in a shell, there’s no reason it won’t work in Enna
I have been waiting on enna for a long time and it is great to see this release. It is really more of a multimedia desktop than a standard app.
I should mention that, ironicaly given its heritage, this version is incompatible with e17 from the “official” e17 repos at packages.enlightenment.org due to library versioning issues. It does however work nicely with e17 built from current source code.
Enna is a great demo of the power of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries as a cross-platform development tool.
Sorry but mplayer works fine. What can I can do next ? (I have not the enna icon)
Ive got a 404er error:
> W: Konnte http://packages.geexbox.org/dists/karmic/mai/binary-amd64/Packages.gz nicht holen 404 Not Found
> W: Could not download http://packages.geexbox.org/dists/karmic/mai/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
So, Id like to ask you, whether you could upload the .deb(s) for Karmic 64 Bit?
Kind regards, Keba.
You probably badly copy/pasted.
Yep, that was the problem. Thanks 🙂
I installed this Enna successfully but I am unable to find the option to change the city. The weather shows New York. I guess it should have read the city from the Ubuntu config but it doesn’t. Any idea how to do it.
How to install this in jaunty?
I cant get this to work i dont have the permissions to save the source list file every time i try to save it it says it doesn’t exist. I am assuming this is because linux only gives you permissions for your users home directory nothing else. i am a linux nube and need some help. Please and thank you
Give your password (the password that you provided while installing ubuntu)
