Well, that means you aren't getting the needed packages installed, most likely.
.deb would be a big plus since Ubuntu is distro-trendy.

Also you should get in #nightingale at irc.mozilla.org ilikenwf and timmythepirate Smile
Anyway, I'm trying my best to get a 32-bit build that can work well in all 32-bit distros. We'll see how it goes.
I can't IRC tonight, I have a job interview I'm prepping for...

We can package if you can get them to work on ubuntu, but to help you we'd need error messages and such...Generally with debian systems you setup a ppa on launchpad with debian specific patches.

FYI, you could try updating the old Songbird ppa: https://code.launchpad.net/~ddecator/son...d-20100416

DO NOT APPLY ANY OF THE PATCHES, though!!!
What were the errors with Fedora. I was able to get Nightingale working well on my Fedora15 machine, which is 32 bit.
So, it seems that the problems I had with making tarballs came from the fact that Ubuntu and Debian are not willing to play well with other distros. Open SUSE on the other hand appears to be able to create tarballs that can run well on any 32-bit system. So, when I find the time, I'll post a 32-bit and 64-bit tarball on github. But, in the meantime, I'll be living in the school library at least until the end of the week. At least I managed to figure out that the problem is due to Ubuntu being a piece of crap. =P
Let's post those somewhere other than github...github isn't for binary distribution.

I'll toss one of my 64 bit builds up sometime if you'd like to try it.
All right, so I managed to find the time to make 32-bit and 64-bit tarballs. I tested the 32-bit build in Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSuSE and there doesn't appear to be any problems. I just made a 64-bit build in openSuSE, but I don't have the time to test it right now. I can post these builds wherever, but I think it would be nice if we had a clearly visible "Download Nightingale" button on the homepage of this site - similar to the Download button that firefox has for downloading firefox tarballs.

Also, everyone please spread the word that Nightingale is not dead and if you know how to make deb or rpm packages, feel free to contribute the builds that you make.

That's the goal!

Before we release, I'd like to get rs..rx... the cool guy with the inpronounceable name to possible make a new windows build since GeekShadow enhanced the skin since he last did so...

And if we could get a mac dev I'd like to roll a release for that out asap, but we can roll as soon as we have a windows package as far as I'm concerned.

I think GeekShadow has mirror space for us to host the downloads.

For the moment I put the builds on sourceforge. I figure this is a good enough place for the files, at least until a more permanent location can
