Deadbeef music player

How can I install the Deadbeef music player? It's not in the repos and I don't know if I should use the Debian .deb file I've got as I'm new to Devuan Ascii.

Re: Deadbeef music player

I got it here and put it in the latest Refracta build. I've used past versions in earlier Refracta builds (squeeze and wheezy)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/deadbee … _amd64.deb

dpkg -i deadbeef*.deb

If you get errors about missing dependencies, run apt-get -f install

Re: Deadbeef music player

That worked, thanks very much! I wasn't sure if I could use Debian .deb files or not. I've now also installed Google Chrome (for Netflix).

FYI there is chromium in the repository, and that does less spying on you than the official google chrome.

Re: Deadbeef music player

Thanks, but I need Chrome for Netflix. It's all I use it for. Usually I stick with either Seamonkey or Vivaldi (and very rarely Tor), depending on the hardware.
