XBOX360 Games Easy Updater v3.0 for the Linux operating system has been released by developer Red Squirrel. Version 3.0 has a new GUI layout, resizable window, keyboard shortcuts, and more. A new video demonstrating v3.0 on Linux is also available.
You can use this app to search for and download updates for your 360 games, without the need of Xbox Live.
The information below is an excerpt from redsquirrel87.com.
It’s a simple Linux tool to search for and download updates for your XBOX360 games directly from your PC (no need of XBOX Live!))
You have simply to select one or more XBOX360 ISOs and the program automatically will get the Media-ID (using ABGX) and will search for the latest available update on the online database of xbuc.net. Then you’ll can download it directly using this program, so without the need to open any internet browser or external programs.
Installation and dependencies:
This program does not require an installation in your PC but it has two dependencies: Gambas2 and curl.
You can use the installation packages ready for use (DEB for Ubuntu and Debian based distros or AUR for Archlinux) or, if you want to do it manually, in
Ubuntu (and derivates) just type in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install curl gambas2-gb-settings gambas2-gb-desktop gambas2-gb-form gambas2-gb-gui gambas2-gb-net gambas2-gb-net-curl gambas2-runtime
In Archlinux just type in a terminal:
sudo pacman -Syu curl gambas2-gb-settings gambas2-gb-desktop gambas2-gb-form gambas2-gb-gui gambas2-gb-net gambas2-gb-net-curl gambas2-runtime
For other distros you can download sources to compile here: http://gambas.sourceforge.net/en/main.html (Gambas2) and http://curl.haxx.se/ (curl).
After installing the dependencies, to run this program just double click on .gambas file. If it does not start, this means you have to give it the “executable” attribute. To do it, just type in a terminal:
chmod +x XGEU.gambas
