Why not use checkinstall as it creates a deb which installed and can be removed by synaptic
checkinstall is easy
apt-get install checkinstall
then instead of make install
sudo checkinstall make install
What?!? This blog is awesome!!! I hopped onto google to find a Windows-based alternative software solution for my recently purchased line6 pocketpod and this article was sitting at the top of my gReader headlines. Thanks for the post!
this is incredible! i have been browsing for a really good ubuntu site, and this is by far the best out there.
keep them coming!
Excellent Job! Thank you. It worked like a charm on Ubuntu 10.10 (x64).
Hi, excellent job. I would like to try PCBSD and was wondering if my guitarport will work on it.
Any help is appreciated.
Sorry, but I could’nt install following this instructions. Others were wrong too.
So, just 5 seconds before see my linux-pc flying, I wrote in synaptic’s search “line6”, and that’s it!
The only way.
I just want to celebrate: I’m hearing Crash Test Dummies mmmm mmm mmm .
Thanks anyway. A lot
OK, I got it to work as well… Now what? What software do you use to play guitar on it?
