How To Install SABNZBDplus And Spotlite On Ubuntu 12.10
I DO NOT ENCOURAGE ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING THIS IS JUST A GUIDE TO INSTALL THE SOFTWARE!! I DISABLED THE COMMENTS AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS OR HOW IT WORKS USE YOUR GOOGLE SKILLS!!
People who are familiar with downloading from the newsgroups using Spotnet know that the software only runs on Windows. I’ve been looking for a similar program that works on Linux and i found Spotlite. Spotlite is almost the same but it lacks an download option, what it does is this. It will do a search on the newsgroups servers for the software/games/movie/music just like Spotnet does. It will show you a long list of search results and when hoovering over a button a dropdown menu appears with newsgroup servers where you can find the needed nzb file. When you have downloaded and saved the nzb file on you can use SABNZBDplus to download it. Spotlite is a dutch piece of quality software but is very simple to use for everybody. The search result info is all in dutch but i think it won’t be a problem 🙂
Before you can install SABNZBDplus you first need to add the PPA for jcfp to your repository. To add the PPA and install SABDNZBDplus open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jcfp/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus
