Elisa Media Center on Ubuntu 8.10

Elisa Media Center is a free and open source, cross-platform media center application from Fluendo SA, the same Spanish company responsible for the development of the Codeina Codec Installer Service. It (Elisa) is installed by default on Sabayon Linux and Mandriva Linux Powerpack 2009, but on distros like Ubuntu, you will have to install it yourself.

Luckily, it is very easy to install Elisa on Ubuntu – it is in the default repository. All you need to do then is fire up the application installer from Applications Menu > Install/Remove, and type elisa in the search bar. Select Elisa from the search result, and click on the “Apply Changes” button.


In a few short minutes, Elisa should be installed, and you can launch the application from Applications Menu > Sound and Video > Elisa.

The version of Elisa in Ubuntu’s repository is currently 0.5.9, but the very latest stable version of Elisa is Elisa 0.5.18. The Elisa development team is on a very aggressive release schedule, about one release per week, so it’s going to be very difficult to get the latest from your distros repos. That means that to experience the latest features of Elisa, you may have to get the latest version from the project’s download site.
