How to install Deadbeef add-ons/plugins

These plugins can be found at this address.

There are .so files that have to be copied into a folder

On their site they say: ~/.local/lib/deadbeef/

Tested and confirmed for 0.6.2

This new version has a new foobar like option to customize the GUI:

View-Design mode

That is saved in home/@user/.config/deadbeef/config

- Cleaning up these locations might be useful in case of problems.

Use Axel instead of apt-get

to speed up terminal download, use apt-fast

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install apt-fast axel
When installing apt-fast in Ubuntu via its PPA, the package asks you if 
you want to use aptitude or apt-get, what download manager to use (axel 
or aria2c). If, later on, you want to change some of the apt-fast 
options, use the following command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure apt-fast
