I installed from file deb the last version of Minitube 2.5 becouse 2.4 stopped working. But...Uberstudent don't even open it.
When I try to launch it, nothing happens.

I installed again Minitube with the following commands from the web :

sudo apt-get install libqt5widgets5 libqt5network5 libqt5script5 libqt5sql5 libqt5sql5-sqlite libqt5dbus5 phonon4qt5 libphonon4qt5-4 phonon4qt5-backend-gstreamer
wget -O minitube32.deb http://flavio.tordini.org/files/minitube/minitube.deb
sudo dpkg -i minitube32.deb

but ... doesn't work

When a user adds a "whack-a-mole" program like minitube in to UberStudent, it really isn't something I can devote a lot of time to supporting, given the nature of the program.

Still, I installed it just as you did--and the list of dependencies you gave is correct, according to the package's control file--and it runs just fine. However, it won't communicate with YouTube.

This is almost certainly related to a change Google made in its api, and such changes are not always well documented. This is something you'll need to take up with Minitube's developer. I'm guessing he is already well aware of the issue but that fixing it may take some time.

You actually have to install your own API key.

Get one at https://console.developers.google.com/start

Some directions are at https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?PHP ... #msg199904 and following.

There are really good reasons why a program like minitube will never be installed by default in UberStudent. ;)

I got the API but I don't know how to add them to minitube.
I tried :
If you already have Minitube installed you can simply add your personal API Key :

sudo nano /etc/profile.d/minitube.sh
Add the following line :

export GOOGLE_API_KEY="your-google-api-key"
but when I get the terminal with the line export Google etc. in a dark board
I push CTRL +0 to write the line in minitube ( I think so) but after closing the terminal nothing happens.
Please ,Stephen, why you have such a position regarding minitube? What does "wharck a mole" means?
Thanks for your time.
Enrico

By "whack-a-mole" I mean that the nature of this program means it's going to frequently break. Why? Because YouTube is always changing, and in fact, they are probably actually trying to break mintube. Why? Because the program deliberately deprives YouTube's content-creators, and owner Google, of revenue. I'm just not going to use my time supporting that.
