Try Audacious, you can import Winamp presets, too. Open up a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type

sudo apt-get install audacious

well i've found it by googling for it...but it doesn't seem to have Ubuntu in the list of compatible OS's provided on that page...it has Debian though..should i go for that or shud i use the one meant for kUbuntu?

June 1st, 2008, 01:54 PM
have a look in the screenshot.

also yo can try

sudo apt-get install amarok

in a terminal

June 1st, 2008, 01:55 PM
heh, yes it is a kubuntu app, and it will run fine on ubuntu. it will download some kde libs.

you can also try exaile. it is a gnome version if that suits you better...

June 1st, 2008, 01:59 PM

i seem to be having a problem with my Add/Remove Programs...it freezes when i try to add anything at all...i can't even install CompizFusion and it was one thing i was really looking forward to...is there an alternate way?? can i do something with the terminal??

June 1st, 2008, 02:12 PM
what version of ubuntu do you have for a start?

and was it a clean install or an upgrade?

June 1st, 2008, 02:13 PM
it is the latest one..8.04 64bit version..if u mean upgrade over another version of Ubuntu...then no...it was a clean install using Wubi over WIndows XP...

June 1st, 2008, 02:15 PM
any particular the 64-bit?

and try and install something from the command line.
go applications>accessories>terminal


sudo apt-get install vlc

(vlc is a very good media player :D)

June 1st, 2008, 02:18 PM
Its an AMD Turion 64 Single Core ancient monster..lol...yes i have installed everything using the terminal only uptil now..i have even upgraded all my software with it..it wud be very nice of you if you could explain how to use the terminal to get software...i have to post for every little software otherwise...really sorry...

June 1st, 2008, 02:22 PM
well the normal way is using apt. synaptic is actually a gui frontend for apt.


sudo apt-get install *package name*

is the standard code. sudo is super user do, to give you admin privileges, apt-get is a version apt to install will, install is self-explanatory. of course you need to know the package name ;)

also, have you tried

sudo dpkg --configure -a

and then the add/reomve?

June 1st, 2008, 02:27 PM
yes i have tried that... it still doesn't work..is tere some super-library containing all the pakage names? how will i know???

June 1st, 2008, 02:29 PM
heh, not afaik.

you could always have a look at


June 1st, 2008, 02:35 PM
If your intent on learning the terminal (which is a good thing in my books ;)) then you may want to run
apt-cache search <package> to find applications relating to that package. You can also use keywords if I remember correctly :)

Sometimes you may want to pipe it through less, so it's easier to read
apt-cache search <package> | less To get out of reading if you use the above - just hit 'q'

June 1st, 2008, 02:36 PM
no too many softwares there though..but i'll keep checking...thanks a ton mate..

June 1st, 2008, 02:53 PM
The medibuntu repo may be something you want to look at - as well as Ubuntu Studio :)

June 1st, 2008, 03:31 PM
i am also not able to download the Flash plugin for Firefox...it just freezes after i click on install plugin.. what should i do?

June 1st, 2008, 03:32 PM
You can try
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
