Looks like some dependencies are missing from Amazon MP3 Downloader. I Googled, but couldn't find a working solution (there are a few blog posts, but they are old).

What steps do I need to follow to install it correctly?

The Amazon MP3 package requires a fairy old set of audio packages to install. These packages are no longer in the normal repositories, so you can download the required packages either from the Ubuntu Hardy Heron repository at packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/. I've made an archive on dropbox, here's the link but you don't have to trust me and can get them yourself through searching.

For reference, the packages are

libboost-date-time1.34.1

libboost-filesystem1.34.1

libboost-iostreams1.34.1

libboost-regex1.34.1

libboost-signals1.34.1

liboost-thread1.34.1

libicu38

Do you specifically need the Amazon MP3 Downloader? Otherwise, Banshee supports Amazon MP3 Downloads since version 1.7.2.

Generally the Amazon downloader is always "behind the times" and frequently doesn't work on the most current version of a linux OS.

You might, instead, try pymazon which is why I've been using for downloading Amazon purchases. It might be available in your package manager already (my Ubuntu machine isn't turned on at the moment or I'd test it for you; it is packaged in Fedora).

I followed the steps for pymazon, it throws a bunch of errors - dependency errors. My machine is 64 bit, is it because of it? –  user187809 Mar 16 '11 at 1:49
