installation on Ubuntu Linux

Post by marimo » Fri Nov 18, 2016 7:10 am

Dear members ,

As i'm looking for a ballroom dj software for our dance club, i found this site and was wondering if there is a installation guide for ubuntu Linux.
I'm not a frequent user of Linux, and do not know all the stuff on ubuntu, but i like it very much.

I've already installed a copy of this software on the Ubuntu OS, but there is no start button somewhere.
I need a command or a launch button to start the software. I'm not aware how to start it on the terminal.
I tried to search the internet, but without success.

could someone get me in the right direction to start the software on Ubuntu.

I will also install and test it on a windows machine , but there is a installation guide available.
So this will not be a problem i suppose.

Thanks in advance for helping me out with the Linux part.
Kind regards

Here are the install instructions for Linux in case you didn't find them already:

https://ballroomdj.org/trac/wiki/Install/Linux

These installation instructions are terminal based. You can open a terminal and type these commands in.

Sorry, I did not think about having a start icon for BallroomDJ for Linux.
I will see if I can put that together by some time next week.

For now:
As an example, I have my BallroomDJ installed in $HOME/music-local.
If I use the file navigator to go to my home folder, then select the "music-local" folder.
Then double-click on "ballroomdj.tcl".
It asks me if I want to "Run in Terminal", "Display", "Cancel" or "Run".
Select "Run".

Version 3.3.14 is now available for download. It will now create a desktop icon for Linux (for gnome-style window managers anyways).

I have updated the installation instructions with information on how to install via the GUI.

Please let me know if there any issues with the installation and feel free to ask any other questions.

hi bll ,

thanks for replying, and i'll install the new version so i can see if there is any start button created.
I will let you know if it works.
Also thanks for the installation url for Linux, and that you have put it on your website also.

I'll test it as soon as possible.
Thanks again for the reply.
