First try, requires first post
i have recently installed ubuntu on an old tower. the purpose of which is to eventually convert over to a jutebox.
After some searching i found that the best program for the job will probably be a program called tvjutebox
in the readme the programer vaguely gives instructions on how to create a make file and that is supposed to execute the file. i cant get this to work and do not understand the language.
if sombody could walk me through the installation, point me towards a good resource, or just give me an idea another comparable program i could install, i would be obliged

I'm sure other members who run Ubuntu here can suggest other formats to use also. Good luck with it.
Happy Trails, Rok
