Hi folks,

For those of you wishing to install things like Google Earth, Picasa, Real Player and lots more, just do as follows :

The simplest way seemed doing as on an Ubuntu by installing the Automatix 2 scripts.
- At first, make sure you have non-free & contrib repositories in your /etc/apt/sources.list, like this :

deb [ftp.fr.debian.org] etch main non-free contrib

(you may adapt to your location, not everybody has the luck to live in France ;-) ).

- Update your package database, if you have to :
# apt-get update

Then proceed as follows for installing automatix2 :

# echo "deb [www.getautomatix.com] etch main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

# wget [www.getautomatix.com]

# gpg --import automatix2.key

# gpg --export --armor E23C5FC3 | sudo apt-key add -

... Update your packages database again :
# apt-get update

... and finally install automatix :
# apt-get install automatix2

... This is not quite over ! You need to modify a file that makes automatix check the distro version at startup. Go to /usr/lib/automatix2/, and ;

# cd /usr/lib/automatix2/
# cp distro_helpers.py distro_helpers.py-original
vim distro_helpers.py

... and once there, locate the string :
versions = (('6.06','6.06'),('6.10','6.10'),('7.04','7.04'),('4.0r0','4.0r0'))
... and replace it to :
versions = (('6.06','6.06'),('6.10','6.10'),('7.04','7.04'),('4.0','4.0r0'))

...That's it. Save and run automatix as root :
# automatix2

... and choose in the list the programs you wish to install in the list.

I tried this succesfully on two different setups of Elive on a Dell Laptop and a Arsrock-based PC. I hope this will help.

Yours,

Due to my request,Theemahn,the developper of the Ultamatix,the successor of the old Automatix,will release the latest version(1.8.0-7) to be compatible with Debian too.So just wait few more weeks.
Edit:this one works for Debian Sid only.
