Install HeadPhones command line Ubuntu

In this HeadPhones tutorial. We are going to install HeadPhones on a computer with Ubuntu. Via the command line.

I assume that python is already installed. Because, for example, SickBeard also needs this. If not, execute the command below to install Python.

sudo apt-get install git-core python

We must first install git. If that hasn’t been done yet. We do this by executing the following command.

sudo apt-get install git-core

We must be sure that we are in the home directory. So we type the following.

cd ~

Then type below to download HeadPhones. It will put Headphones in a hidden folder “.headphones” note the dot!

git clone https://github.com/rembo10/headphones.git .headphones

Now go to the HeadPhones folder.

cd .headphones

To start HeadPhones, type below.

python Headphones.py

You can acces HeadPhones via http: // localhost: 8181″ in your browser. Or via the IP address of your other computer “http://192.168.1.65:8181” To adjust your settings in HeadPhones.

Automatically start HeadPhones when Ubuntu starts

We must be sure. That we are in the HeadPhones folder.

cd ~/.headphones

Now we are going to create a deamon for HeadPhones. So HeadPhones starts automatically. When the computer starts.

sudo cp init.ubuntu /etc/init.d/headphones
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/headphones
sudo update-rc.d headphones defaults

Now we still have to do the settings of the deamon.

sudo nano /etc/default/headphones

Delete the ## in the following options. And indicate the correct location where HeadPhones is installed. Don’t forget the dot!

HP_USER= you Ubuntu username
HP_HOME=home/your_username/.headphones
HP_DATA=home/your username/.headphones

Personally, I find it clear if HeadPhones. Running in the same port range as SickBeard and SABnzbd. So I adjust the port right here.
HP_PORT=8088

And now check if it works.

sudo /etc/init.d/headphones start

You have now finished installing the HeadPhones Ubuntu tutorial
