GCstar on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

by Pierre-Yves Landuré last modified 2007-09-18 19:04

GCstar is a personal collections manager allowing you to list your books, comics, films, and more... If, like me, you count your books in meters (yes, in meters, at my last check, i had 6 meters of books :D), it's a must-have tool ! This article explain how to install GCstar 1.2.2 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.

Fast and obfuscated

If you are on the run, start by initializing your sudo environment :

sudo echo
You can now copy/paste the following lines to install GCstar:
sudo sh -c 'echo "# GCStar for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
deb feisty gcstar
deb-src feisty gcstar" \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-landure-gcstar.list'
wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install gcstar


A nice packager created a package of GCstar for Debian/Ubuntu. I used his work to create a package of GCStar 1.2.2 for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. Here is the method to install it starting from my repository. We start by adding the lines of configuration of my repository to apt configuration :

sudo sh -c 'echo "# GCStar for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
deb feisty gcstar
deb-src feisty gcstar" \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-landure-gcstar.list'

We download the GPG key signing my repository:

wget -O- | sudo apt-key add -

We update the list of available packages:

sudo apt-get update

and we install GCstar:

sudo apt-get install gcstar

You have now a functional installation of GCstar. You can start this software from Applications - > Sound and Video.


  • Thanks to the developers of GCstar.
  • Thanks to Alexander Wirt, the initial packager of GCstar :D.
