dbm: download page

Table of Contents


First, please install this Microsoft package. It seems to be necessary. Then download the dbm executable, unzip and double-click on dbm.exe.

Linux / OS X

Download In addition to dbm you need to install PyQt and mutagen. On an ubuntu/debian based system that can be done with

sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-mutagen

With those installed, dbm can be run by executing the file dbm.pyw (e.g. by double-clicking on it).

The following commands install dbm and all the other components it needs on an ubuntu/debian-based linux system.

sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-mutagen python-musicbrainz2
wget http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~davison/software/dbm/dbm.zip
unzip dbm.zip && cd dbm
rm -f *.pyc
chmod +x dbm.py dbm.pyw

You can also run dbm from the source code on Windows, but it's a lot more work, as you have to install python and a couple of python libraries that it requires.


dbm is free and open source software. I'd really appreciate it if you dropped me an email to let me know you're using the software (davison at stats dot ox dot ac dot uk), and to let me know how it goes, report problems etc.
