Install Handbrake on Linux Mint 14

The popular Handbrake video conversion application has sometimes had difficulty running on new versions of Linux Mint, but the current version of Handbrake, 0.9.8, works just fine on Linux Mint 14. Best of all, the installation only takes a few Terminal commands.

First, you’ll need to add Handbrake’s PPA (personal package archive) to your system. Go to a Terminal window and type this command:

sudo add-apt-repository http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu

Enter your password to authenticate, and the PPA will be added to your system.

Next, update your system’s listings of its software sources with this command:

sudo apt-get update

After the listings have been updated, install Handbrake itself with this command:

sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk

After the installation is complete, you can launch Handbrake by going to the Dash, searching for “Handbrake”, and clicking on the program’s icon.
