Handbrake for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail

Handbrake is a fantastic piece of software that I prefer to run on my Ubuntu machine, that I updated to 13.04 a little while ago.

There are Handbrake versions for Ubuntu available via the Stebbins PPA (thank you very much!).

At this time, no version for 13.04 (Raring Ringtail), only for older versions of Ubuntu. However, I found that the 12.10 (Quantal) version works perfectly with 13.04. You just need to:

  1. Add deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu quantal main to /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. Add the key using apt-key (paste the key to a textfile)
  3. apt-get update
  4. apt-get install handbrake-gtk

Probably not so long until Stebbins releases for 13.04, but until then this might be useful for someone.
