Detailed installation instructions - Xubuntu 17.04

Postby phink » Mon Jun 26, 2017 10:59 pm

After several attempts I've managed to get LinuxSampler and QSampler installed on Xubuntu 17.04 without having to install subversion.

There seems to be a lack of OS-specific detailed instructions for LinuxSampler, so I decided to post the installation steps that I used to get it working. Presumably this would also work with little if any modification with other *buntus. The procedure uses the 'checkinstall' package to create easily uninstallable .deb packages, with custom package names to avoid upgrade conflict with standard versions of the same packages from the Ubuntu repositories.

Hopefully this will be helpful to someone.

There is a Debian HOWTO. However it would need a refresh.
