Looks like puddletag was left out of Focal (Series 5x) by Ubuntu. Reference:

You could try installing the 'all' version from bionic in that link. There's no telling how that would end up, so the smart thing to do is try it in a VM first. Good luck.

Hello folks,

I inherited my sister-in-law's ancient (circa 2007) HP Compaq Presario tower. I've installed Linux Lite on a couple of other computers before and always found it difficult to locate the software I needed. I find the Package Manager lacking in audio-oriented programs.

I've gotten around some of these limitations with this latest installation, and even had to install Flatpak to get at least a few "groovy" apps. But I'm at a real impasse with trying to install my fav music tagging program "Puddletag". It isn't in the currently installed Package Manager (which kind of shocks me) and it's not available as a Flatpak either.

The only advice the Puddletag website states about install it is:

Installing on Ubuntu
You can install puddletag from the Software Centre in recent versions of Ubuntu.

Errrrr... no. Sorry. For me, Puddletag is the de facto music file tagger. I've tried all the others of the years and they all suck balls. "EasyTag" is alright, but has quirks that drives me nuts and is limited in features.

Am I screwed here? I don't want to install from source and mess things up as I've worked hard to get this Linux Lite to where I have it now. It just boggles my mind that the package manager knows nothing of this great piece of software. I have "Puddletag" on a couple of other machines in my home but I don't want to deal with moving music files here and there just to tag the darn things.

Any advice that might help me get this app installed on Linux Lite? (Thanks in advance.)
