Puddletag Automatic MP3 Tagger for Ubuntu Linux

When I used to use Microsoft Windows, I used MP3Tag to organise my digital music collection as it allowed for custom scraping scripts to attempt to retrieve tags and covers from specific sources such as my favourite; the Metal Archives script. MP3Tag looks just as bad running via WINE as it does under Microsoft Windows so Puddletag (PyQt), a feature-similar open source alternative, is like a dream come true.

The source, packages and a dependency list are available here but the programme isn’t available in the Ubuntu repository though Andrew of Web Upd8 kindly maintains a PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/puddletag
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install puddletag
