  1. Hi, I have Ubuntu 12.04 . I cannot install because it says “missing opus-tools” and I cannot install it. How could I solve?

    • opus-tools is available in Ubuntu 12.10 and higher. Go to the launchpad page, download & install the quantal version or install opus-tools from the third-party ppa (Click the “Other versions of ‘opus-tools’ in untrusted archives” to view PPAs).
