Easy Audacious 1.5.1 Script for Hardy Heron

Special thanks to Morgoth for the backport! Others can be found at http://morgoth.free.fr/ubports/?d=hardy.

There are other ways to install Audacious 1.5.1 in Hardy, but they can get pretty prickly. One version requires a complete revamp of libgtk2.0 to be installed, while another requires updating your repository list, which can time out. This installs Audacious 1.5.1, fixing the various playlist issues. Believe it or not, this is the fast, easy way, and it can by copy/pasted into terminal.  The script downloads the 4 packages from Morgoth’s site and installs them using dpkg.
