Get Amarok 1.4 back in Ubuntu Jaunty

The dreadful nature of Amarok 2 in Ubuntu 9.04 pushed me to trying out Exaile. Still there are things that Amarok is peerless at. Its Shoutcast station list is extensive so I started to find a way to get Amarok 1.4 back. I found this blog entry that just does the job, . If you want Amarok 1.4 back go there.

These are the steps:

Add the PPA to your sources by creating a new file for the Amarok PPA:

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/amarok.list

Then in that new file add the following two lines:

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

Add the key for the PPA:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver \

Now update your sources, remove Amarok2 and install Amarok1.4:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove amarok
sudo apt-get install amarok14
