Adding the Studio packages to Ultimate Edition

Want to add all the Too Cool Studio packages to Ultimate Edition?
This installs a whole host of apps. from daw's (digital audio workstations) to synths, sequencers,effects & signal processing,midi. as well as jack.

You will need to disable the ultimate repo first or it wont go through. its an issue with dependencies between audacious & audacious plugins.
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Find the Ultimate Edition repo, Hardy should look like this
deb harty all #Ultimate Repo

Comment it out by putting a # in front of it

After the install just re-enable the ultimate repo by removing the #

Now that you've done the prep work, prepare to eat up some bandwidth.
to install the packages
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-plugins

Update manager will tell you audacious can be updated. don't do this. Instead go to synaptic. search for audacious and choose lock version. Yes it wont update audacious any more but you wont have to worry about the annoying update notification when it cant update it anyway due to dependencies. This is the only way around it that i have found.
