Automatix2 1.1-3.10 for Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

Posted in Development Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Utilities


Even before the official release of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn, there have been huge demand for Automatix package to be bundled in the repository. Unfortunately, during that time, Automatix only supports up to Ubuntu 6.10; support for version 7.xx has not been released. Finally, the wait is over, Automatix2, is now available for Ubuntu 7.04 users!

Other than supporting version 7.04, this latest release also comes with Crossover Office Standard and Professional on Ubuntu 7.04 amd64 (which basically means you can run a ton of 32 bit windows software on Ubuntu 7.04 amd64). I just happen to found out from the website that the CEO and Founder of Dell Inc. also uses Automatix2 on his home computer (no wonder Dell is switching to bundle their systems with Linux operating systems these days *joking*)

Anyway, I’ll keep it concise. If you are looking for ease of installations of closed source packages, this is your answer.

Installation Procedure
Run the following from terminal:

  1. echo “deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt feisty main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. wget http://www.getautomatix.com/keys/automatix2.key
  3. gpg –import automatix2.key
  4. gpg –export –armor E23C5FC3 | sudo apt-key add -
  5. sudo apt-get update
  6. sudo apt-get install automatix2

The above 6 steps will install Automatix2 in Ubuntu Feisty Fawn for you (note that other versions of Ubuntu requires different repository).
