View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu players

Hy all
Is there another music player, beside Amarok, which shows the song lyrics? I am having troubles with Amarok (no lyrics script are working) so I decided to ditch it.Any suggestions?

I think banshee can get song lyrics

EDIT: It can't by default, there's a plugin here (http://www.gtk-apps.org/content/show.php/Banshee+Lyrics+plugin?content=64837)

EDIT 2: listen has lyrics by default

sudo apt-get install listen

hope that helps,

If I try to play something I get this message "You do not have the appropriate Gstreamer plugin installed to play this file: file:///media/disk/Muzica/Smokie - Full Discography/1990 - Boulevard of Broken Dreams/11 - Heart need company.mp3".How can I get the plugin?If I try to install from "Plugins" it says "No plugins or updates could be found for your version"...Can someone help me?

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Would install the needed gstreamer plugins.

Right-click a song and choose "Information"

May 27th, 2008, 12:26 PM
If I chose "Informations" it says I have to install gnome-python-extras.I can't find them with my synaptic package manager.What are those and where do I find them?

sudo apt-get install python-gnome2-extras

May 27th, 2008, 12:31 PM
Are you sure that's not python-gnome2-extras?
