Update: FlexGet Installation and Upgrade in Ubuntu

This is an update to my previous article on how to set up FlexGet in Ubuntu. In this post, FlexGet v.1.0r2733 will be used on Ubuntu 11.10.

The reason for this new post is that the install and update processes have changed from using easy_install to pip, an alternative Python package installer. Both installation as also upgrading can be done with this tool.

Still, there have to be certain packages around:

aptitude install python2.6 python-setuptools python-pip

Now, the installation can easily take place:

pip install flexget

In case of an upgrade, the according line would be:

pip install --upgrade flexget

The following step is optional. In case an interface to transmission-daemon is of use, the according FlexGet-plugin is installed like this:

pip install transmissionrpc
