This is the Ubuntu counterpart to my earlier post about deploying python iView on Windows (python iView homepage).
Fortunately, it is much easier than Windows, everything is achieved with a single shell script.
#!/bin/bash # Installs python-iview including all dependencies # Script assumes /usr/bin in on the path (is with default installs) # Brendan Graetz 20100521 # # python-iview by Jeremy Visser: http://jeremy.visser.name/2009/08/30/python-iview/ #install bazaar and python library sudo apt-get install bzr sudo apt-get install python-beautifulsoup #install dev dependencies in order to be able to compile sudo apt-get install libssl-dev sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev #download rtmpdump source wget http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/download/rtmpdump-2.2d.tgz ~/Downloads/rtmpdump-2.2d.tgz #compile rtmpdump & create softlink on path cd /usr/local/ tar -xzf ~/Downloads/rtmpdump-2.2d.tgz cd rtmpdump-2.2d make posix sudo ln -s
pwd/rtmpdump /usr/bin/rtmpdump #check out python iview from repository cd /usr/local/ bzr branch http://jeremy.visser.name/bzr/python-iview/ ./python-iview #create softlinks on path sudo ln -s
pwd/python-iview/iview-gtk /usr/bin/iview-gtk sudo ln -s
pwd/python-iview/iview-cli /usr/bin/iview-cli sudo ln -s /usr/bin/iview-gtk /usr/bin/iview
The only somewhat tricky bit here is that you need to compile rtmpdump, because it does not distribute binaries (not .deb‘s anyway). For that you will need to install a couple of dependencies which are not immediately obvious: libssl-dev and zlib1g-dev.
