    iTunes like music manager

    One of the things that I miss about Windows and iTunes is how easy it was to orginize music with iTunes.

    I would drag a file to iTunes and it would automatically save it for me in the Music folder. And If i deleted music from the iTunes, it would be gone from the Music folder either.

    Is there a player for Ubuntu that can do this ?

    Thanks.

    I know both Banshee and Amarok have this functionality.
    Banshee is a GTK program, so if you use Ubuntu or Xubuntu you'll probably like that one more. I also personally use Banshee myself.
    You can change the way the files should be sorted in preferences. If none of the defauls settings are good enough, you can entirely customize them using gconf-editor.

    I also vote clementine, sure in all honesty there is no linux app that will be exactly like itunes but there are a few that do a fair enough job.
    Just put all your downloaded music into the music folder from now on, its only a minor step and no harder then what you have to do in itunes

    Thanks for the feedback,really appreciate it. I stopped on Banshee for now, because it is pretty simple and organized and pleasing to the eye.

    Maybe someone can help me with this - I have some Russian songs, that show up in gibbrish in any music player I tried so far. I googled a way and found how I can fix it with Easytag but it will take a while, so i might have to leave the computer to do that overnight.

    Maybe someone has an easier way? Thanks
