So as an Ubuntu user you can install Basenji 0.8 by using the official PPA channel. Open your Terminal and enter the below command (supports Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and the Natty Narwhal - 11.04).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pulb/ppaAs said the automatic drive scanning demon has to be installed separately, to do that use the below command.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install basenji
sudo apt-get install volumedb-toolsThis is a cross-platform software tool which you can get from the Basenji home page.
