    Wink HOWTO - Install XMMS on Ubuntu 10.04

    As I red on http://www.shicho.net/lamp/?p=88 (thanks to Lamp):

    Code:
    I went to:
    
    * https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/i386/libglib1.2ldbl/1.2.10-19build1
    
    Downloaded and installed:
    
        * libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_i386.deb
    
    Went to:
    
    * https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+1.2/1.2.10-18.1build2/+build/484191
    
    Downloaded and installed (in this order):
    
        * libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb
        * libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_i386.deb
    
    Went to:
    
    * https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/i386/xmms/1:1.2.10+20070601-1build2
    
    Downloaded and installed:
    
        * xmms_1.2.10+20070601-1build2_i386.deb
    
    Amazingly, this seemed to work!
    Hope it can help other users!

    Why use XMMS instead of XMMS2 or other software? Because they simply doesn't work, or use too much memory or cpu, or they are not so intuitive to use.

    Really I can't understand why not supporting xmms into Ubuntu; I know that is not supported anymore but there are MILLIONS of people still using it in the world; a query on google will show this. Also, eliminating the old GLIB 1.2.2 is a very bad thing.

    @asbesto THANKS! I was going crazy from audacious ...

    For anyone interested, here is a full procedure for 64-bit Lucid:
    Code:
    cd /tmp
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/10815906/libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11167863/libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11167856/libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11173506/xmms_1.2.10%2B20070601-1build2_amd64.deb
    
    sudo gdebi libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb
    sudo gdebi libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb
    sudo gdebi libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb
    sudo gdebi xmms_1.2.10+20070601-1build2_amd64.deb
    get some basic skins:
    Code:
    wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/1433551/xmms-skins_0.6-1_all.deb
    sudo gdebi xmms-skins_0.6-1_all.deb
    Add Skins dir: [ALT+S] -> 'Add Directory' -> browse to /usr/share/xmms/Skins

    Classic Winamp2 skin:
    Code:
    wget -P ~/.xmms/Skins http://gnome-look.org/CONTENT/content-files/64790-Winamp.tar.gz

    [WARNING] Following recommendation may be specific to my setup - Realtek ALC889A: [/WARNING]

    After install, run XMMS and select eSound as Audio output plugin:
    [CTRL+P] -> 'Audio I/O Plugins' -> 'Output Plugin' -> 'eSound Output Plugin'

    On my setup OSS is deaf and ALSA plugin brokes playlist advance.
    So despite what XMMS FAQ and website say, you need to go for esd/eSound.

    Open folder in Nautilus -> Right-click m3u file -> open with -> Other ... -> scroll to xmms -> check "Remember this application ..."

    Just make sure you have valid m3u's - some m3u playlist generated on windows tend to have non-complaint format or unrecognizable characters.

    Here is how a proper m3u shall look like:
    Code:
    #EXTM3U
    #EXTINF:255,Nelly Furtado  Whoa, Nelly!   1 - Hey, man!
    01 - Hey, Man!.mp3
    #EXTINF:234,Nelly Furtado  Whoa, Nelly!   2 - ....On the radio
    02 - ...On The Radio.mp3
    #EXTINF:226,Nelly Furtado  Whoa, Nelly!   3 - Baby girl
    03 - Baby Girl.mp3
    ...
    As you can see the file paths are fully relative - that way they will work the same way on Win and Linux.
    Absolute paths are mess most of the time, so avoid unless a specific case warrants it.

    Re: HOWTO - Install XMMS on Ubuntu 10.04

    Thanks.

    Im gonna try this on 10.10.

    I too, dont get, why XMMS is not supported, Amarok and xmms2 just dont cut it. Just tried xmms2, and my cpu usage went on 25 % (I got phenom quad 2.5 ghz).
    Amarok is even hungrier. Cpu jumps to 100% if I do any sudden move with it. Very sad.

    Although, I play 200gb of music. But xmms plays it like a charm with max of 10% of cpu.

    thanx asbesto


    nice to see one more possibly shorter route


    linked it on my earlier page which also has much info and extra plugins for the unique/best player/cannot believe they ditched it from the repos XMMS
