    Need help installing XMMS from through terminal

    I d/l the XMMS tar.bz file. Extracted to desktop.

    I opened the terminal typed:

    cd Desktop
    cd xmms...
    ./configure


    now what?

    thanks

    ps- is there an easier way to do this? Synaptic doesn't have XMMS packages so I had to d/l the tar.bz file from the website.

    Re: Need help installing XMMS from through terminal

    You must be using Ubuntu 8.04 or another distro derived from it.

    I liked XMMS too, but it's not included any more for some reason. If, like me, you want to listen to tunes on Streamtuner/ripper it's not gonna happen without XMMS the default player.

    Unless you know how to change the default player. So, here goes:
    1). applications > Sound & Video > Streamtuner > Edit > Preferences
    2). In the "Preferences" dialog box "Applications" should be highlighted.
    3). In the "Actions" box in the first and third line delete both instances of "xmms %q" (Use slide bar to bring them into view.)
    4). Next replace with your desired player (Amarok, Audacious, etc.)
    NOTE: NO capital letters. DO NOT forget "%q" (These errors are both showstoppers)
    Example: "amarok %q" or "audacious %q"
    ALSO: NO quotation marks.

    I don't know if it's my machines or not, but move the highlighted line off of what you just changed. If you don't it will revert back to "xmms %q." I don't know what it is, but if you don't move the highlighted line to another line besides the ones you just worked on it'll change back to what it was before.

    That's it! Back out and enjoy!

    Just fixed my audacious, I guess after the upgrade it didn't work, did a little research and changed "PulseAudio" output plug-in to "Alsa" output plug-in,and now it works fine !

    No need to build xmms, it is available as debs:

    i386:

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/i...070601-1build2

    amd64:

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/a...070601-1build2

    Beware of dependency problems with libglib1.2 and libglib1.2dbl on the amd64 build, i386 is no problem. You can read about that here:
