Download the tarball and then compile with the usual
./configureBefore doing so you need to install the latest version (2.7.7 at this time) of FLAM3 and make ffmpeg a sibling of the sheep source directory, and apply the patch file included in the tarball (to fix a memory leak). And:
sudo make install
sudo apt-get install mplayer curlThe Changelog:
sudo apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-dev libgconf2-dev
sudo apt-get install libgnome-menu-dev libglade2-dev libgnomeui-dev
use marker files to update cache sooner. global generation no longer part of state. configure gnome-screensaver during install using gconftool-2. start with least recently accessed sheep instead of a random one. add ffmpeg.patch to plug memory leak. ditch the .sheep/id file. move to .electricsheep/* and preferences.xml and electricsheep-preferences (a glade UI to the xml prefs). play electricshep-wait.avi until first sheep arrives. settle on mplayer. remove zoom option since mplayer always does it. note: password is not secure. remove history from ui.Browse the new flock, in 800x600x160 mpeg4. It's at 1/10th quality until we have more users, then I'll crank it up. Bug reports and compatibility issues most welcome.

Instructions: Download one or more, unzip, and place the mpg files in your cache directory. By default on Windows XP that's "c:\windows\system32\electricsheep-cache\mpeg", On Mac OS X it's "~/Library/Application Support/ElectricSheep", and on Linux it's "~/.sheep". On Vista, it's the same as on XP but you need to create the "mpeg" subdirectory yourself.
