Prerequisites (what you need to get it working):
- Computer running Ubuntu
- SqueezeCenter Server
- Network connection
Let's get started:
Download the java version of SoftSqueeze (the .zip file) from your favourite browser.
Create a folder called SoftSqueeze in your home folder by opening a terminal window (Applications \ Accessories \ Terminal).
# mkdir SoftSqueeze
# cd SoftSqueeze
Now unzip the zip file
# unzip ~/Downloads/softsqueeze_3.8.zip
Make the JAR file executable
# sudo chmod +x SoftSqueeze.jar
Install Sun Java 6 Runtime
# sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-fonts
Make JAR file open with Java
# java -jar ~/SoftSqueeze/SoftSqueeze.jar
The only thing left to do in Softsqueeze is to point it to the SqueezeCenter Server and redirect the audio output to "Java Sound Audio Engine".
