I am using Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit and have attempted to install Minitube 2.6 at least 3 times and each time I get the message that “This Minitube package was built with a Google API key.” As a result, no videos will play. Can this be fixed. I do not know how to add a Google API key and I don’t know why I should have to, as I have never encountered this message before with this app. Please help.
Same problem here. Installed it today on Arch Linux through Arch’s package manager. I then managed to make an API key (I think I did it correctly) and set the GOOGLE_API_KEY environment variable, but still nothing works in minitube. E.g. searching produces no results.
This is not a “problem” but a choice of your distribution. They decided to include Minitube in their archives without including the necessary API key. The dialog box clearly tell you what you can do: get your own API key or get Minitube from this website.
