Banshee 2.0.1 is Released - How To Install it in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal?

Nobody wants an introduction about what is Banshee is all about. In fact due to few recent issues with Canonical , Banshee is now actually a world famous :P. Anyhow, although I first thought that Canonical would just kick Banshee out of their distro, but for the obvious reason of getting too much negative "heat" from the community, still with Natty Narwhal, Banshee is the default music player.

From integration, fetching album/artist, etc information via internet to purchasing mp3 files directly from Amazon + syncing your music between Android or iPhone, etc... this is a pretty darn good music player nonetheless.

By using the official PPA channel, we can easily install Banshee in Ubuntu (should also work for 10.10/10.04 ... besides the 11.04 as well).

So, open your Terminal and enter the below command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install banshee banshee-community-extensions

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install banshee
