Question How do I get Songbird to Install on Freespire

I've just installed Freespire on my PC release 2.6.20-16-lowlatency with no problems. I've tried to install Songbird from the Songbird site (CNR says it isn't available) but when I try to get Karchive to install it it says it can't find Configure. I've managed to extract all the files to Home/Dave and can see them but can't see anything that tells me how to compile or install it. Am I missing something simple here - do I have to go through all the command line instructions (which I don't know of course)

No need to compile at all. There should be a binary called "songbird" inside the extracted directory. All you need to do is start it with /path/to/binary. So, if the directory is inside your home folder, you would do ./songbird_folder_name/songbird.


freespire, install, songbird
