Thanks to google and a few websites I managed to get Amazon’s MP3 downloader to work on my linux workstation at home.
It looks like Amazon’s Amazon MP3 application requires libboost 1.34, which is older than the version now included in Ubuntu 10.04. So the first thing that you need to do is download the earlier versions of the libraries.
mkdir Amazon_Downloader cd Amazon_Downloader wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959932/libboost-signals1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959936/libboost-thread1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959922/libboost-iostreams1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959918/libboost-filesystem1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959916/libboost-date-time1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/26959928/libboost-regex1.34.1_1.34.1-16ubuntu1_i386.deb https://launchpadlibrarian.net/34165098/libicu40_4.0.1-2ubuntu2_i386.deb
Next, Install the libraries
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
At this point you can either delete the library files (since there now installed), or keep them in case Amazon doesn’t get round to updating there software (which I’m sure they will of course).
To delete the files from your drive, do the following
cd .. rm -r Amazon_Downloader
Once done, simply re-run the Amazon MP3 downloader and your good to go.
