I've created a PPA (personal package archive ) for Sonic Visualiser and several Vamp plugins.https://launchpad.net/~rghvdberg/+archive/sv
The packages are created for Ubuntu 9.10 (codename karmic) 32bit,64bit and lpia and the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 32bit and 64bit. (Ubuntu 10.04 is in alpha testing.)
Ubuntu users can add this ppa from the command line;
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rghvdberg/sv
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install <package name>
Or by using the Software Sources application
More elaborate instructions are on the PPA page mentioned above.
Sonic Visualiser is compiled with jack and pulseaudio audio output support. MP3 decoding is also compiled in.
At the moment the PPA hosts the following packages.
qm-vamp-plugins 1.6.1-i686 (for 32bit) , 64bit will be uploaded later today
sonic-visualiser 1.7.1 (is actually a svn checkout, the 1.7.1 tarball wouldn't compile)
Ubuntu 10.04 (alpha 3)
I haven't uploaded the mazurka plugins because although they will compile on my 64bit machine, they won't load in SV (undefined symbol error)
I hope people will find it useful
