Howto: Install LogitechMediaServer

Following the recent Howtos, here is another one:

Install LMS

I did this on Wheezy and it worked.

Download LMS either from http://www.mysqueezebox.com/download or, I would recommend, version 7.9 nightly from http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=7.9. Despite not bring released, 7.9 is really stable.

Download the LMS installation file and install it.

# wget THE_LINK_TO_THE_DEB
dpkg --install logitechmediaserver_x.y.z_all.deb

You will get some errors relating to missing dependencies, so we have
to install the missing dependencies:

apt-get install --fix-broken

Install Additional Software
This is needed for conversion from different formats. mplayer is needed for "Play Windows Media" plugin

apt-get install faad sox lame mplayer


You can also install the codecs for wma files, but this is optional:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/codecs && \
if [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ]; then
 wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-amd64-20071007.tar.bz2
 tar xjvf essential-amd64-20071007.tar.bz2
 sudo cp -v essential-amd64-20071007/* /usr/lib/codecs
else
 wget http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20110131.tar.bz2
 tar xjvf all-20110131.tar.bz2
 sudo cp -v all-20110131/* /usr/lib/codecs
fi

Make sure that LMS is running

/etc/init.d/logitechmediaserver start

And enjoy.

You can acces the LMS via your browser on port 9000.

You can also install a player, but this is a different story - maybe later.
Please let me know if something does not work,

Rainer

Looks like dpkg --install is a "double dash" option, so the first box should read:
# wget THE_LINK_TO_THE_DEB
dpkg --install logitechmediaserver_x.y.z_all.deb
(Anybody that knows what they are doing would know that. That means everyone but me :)

Or for a less verbose command just use:

dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_x.y.z_all.deb
