    I would like to install get iplayer on my 32bit antix system. I naormally (in other systems that is) add this repo
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jon-hedgerows/get-iplayer
    and then install it.
    However the above command is unknown.
    Can anyone help me on installing get iplayer please.
    Thanks

    same result here too, seen this before but dont recall what change is needed for the solution.

    so for now have you tried , going to synaptic package manager, settings, repositories, new , enter fields manually ?

    Here’s a packaged version of today’s v3.22+ git master branch
    (one of 3 “known issues” has been fixed since the v3.22 release)

    how to install:

    cd /tmp
    wget https://gitlab.com/skidoo/get-iplayer/blob/master/get-iplayer_3.22~skigit_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i get-iplayer_3.22~skigit_all.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install

    If you are already familiar with the app, you can dive right in and test that it is working
    (I successfully tested the following in antiX 17 and antiX 19; most of my other requests were geoblocked)
    get_iplayer “.*”
    get_iplayer http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07gcv34

    In addition to the manpage, you’ll find installed docs here:
    /usr/share/doc/get_iplayer/get_iplayer.html
    /usr/share/doc/get_iplayer/get_iplayer.manpage.txt

    The installed docs provide links to online tutorials, wiki, and forum.
    This packaged app either works for you, or does not. As a non-user, I’m unable to provide further support.

    note:
    I have removed the in-app “update check” functionality, as well as the “experimental” (and non-secure) webpvr cgi component.

    I think I’ve managed to resolve this. I down loaded ‘get-iplayer_3.22~skigit_all.deb’ to my Downloads folder and ran the command sudo dpkg -i get-iplayer_3.22~skigit_all.deb. I got a list of dependencies which I manually installed via synaptic.
    The cammand sudo apt-get -f install then installed without issue.
    sudo apt-get -f install

    Thanks to Skidoo for the solution.
