[SOLVED] Installing Non-Gnome Software

[SOLVED] Installing Non-Gnome Software

Postby mdiemer » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:56 pm

I would like to install Cantata music player on Z-15. I tried on my first install but it wouldn't open. It is a KDE app I believe. Is there a trick to doing this>
I know Clementine is there, but for classical music Cantata is much better.

Yes, all that was needed was:

sudo apt-get update
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/cantata-qt
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cantata mpd

I forgot about this thread, just getting back to it now. Anyway, up and running.
