  1. Can you please correct the spelling of “Ubuntu” from title of this blog, it’s “Ubnutu”. Also in step – 1 you are giving information about fedora and shared steps to install EasyTag on Ubuntu :(. According to me “su – root ” from step – 1 will never work. Please test it in your Ubuntu machine.

    In step – 2, “*” is no longer needed in ” apt-get install easytag*”.
