    Smile Songbird in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 32-bit and 64-bit

    Hey everyone,

    I've been having problems with the Songbird client that we normally download from repositories. It is slow, unstable, and crashes a lot.

    So I finally figured out that if you download the latest developer version, it is fast, stable, and hasnt crashed yet!

    The only downside is not all plugins are compatible, but it is still awesome to use, its my favourite audio player in Ubuntu.

    Enjoy

    i'm running 64bit so i know to grab x86_64 but which of the two should i get and how do i install as i am not familiar with extracting and installing tar.gz and have never heard of tar.gz.md5

    EDIT* i ran across a tread that discussed installing tar.gz and so i navigated to the directory i unpacked it to, to get ready to do the whole
    ./configure
    make install, etc.
    and i couldnt figure it out exactly. i looked in the folder and found a file simply called "Songbird", i double clicked and was prompted to run in terminal,ect. i chose to just "run" and it began the install process. did i do something wrong or should i have done it a different way?

    Is the easiest way to install Songbird (when their servers decide to work). Doing it the way you have doesn't set up any short cuts or put Songbird in your Applications link. It's all rather annoying.

    To get it to work for me (Ubuntu 10.04), I went here:

    http://developer.songbirdnest.com/builds/trunk/latest/

    (Listed in the "Solved" Thread about Songbird)

    1. Downloaded the "Songbird_1.10.0a-1859_linux-i686.tar.gz" file
    2. Extracted to Desktop
    3. Double click on the "songbird-bin" file

    After it installs, you can delete the extracted folder form your desktop!

    ...so glad I wiped Vista from my Toshiba!
