There are some pre-built packages for several versions of ubuntu available in the GMPC Trunk Team's [PPA].

For older more stable release packages, you can install packages from this [PPA]

Howto use PPA Edit

Add the repository Edit

To install them first remove any previous installed version of gmpc and libmpd.


If your using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic or newer, and want to install the latest stable version, just type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gmpc-trunk/gmpc-stable

If your using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic or newer, and want to install the latest version, just type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gmpc-trunk


If your using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty or older, then add one of one of these to /etc/apt/sources.list:

Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gmpc-trunk/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gmpc-trunk/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gmpc-trunk/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gmpc-trunk/ppa/ubuntu hardy main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gmpc-trunk/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

Update apt Edit

sudo apt-get update

apt-get gmpc Edit

sudo apt-get install gmpc

Debug Packages Edit

Since the GMPC-Trunk Team's PPA is considered to be unstable prerelease packages, you may encounter bugs. In which case, you may be asked to submit a backtrace so that developers can figure out what's gone wrong.

In order to get a proper backtrace you'll need to install the proper debug packages:

sudo apt-get install gmpc-dbg libmpd1-dbg


If your bug is being caused by a plugin you'll need to install the debug package for gmpc-plugins:

sudo apt-get install gmpc-plugins-dbg
