Making Me TV for Ubuntu based system

Compiling
Firstly, there’s a bunch of development libraries and tools that need to be installed,

sudo apt-get install build-essential autotools-dev automake libxml-parser-perl pkg-config libgnome2-dev libgnomeui-dev libxtst-dev libxine-dev libxml2-dev libglade2-dev cdbs libglibmm-2.4-dev libgtkhtml3.8-dev debhelper fakeroot intltool libtool

Next, you’ll want to get the latest version of the source from the Launchpad download page. Extract the source,

tar zxvf me-tv*.tar.gz

Now, compile Me TV,

cd me-tv-*
./autogen.sh
make

The binary should be created at src/me-tv. This binary alone isn’t much use without an existing installation of Me TV because it requires some files to be installed on the system.

Building a deb package
If compiling works then you should be able to build the deb package,

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

This will have created the deb package for under the me-tv-* directory

Installing the deb package
To install the deb package you created

sudo dpkg -i me-tv_*.deb
