    Tips to install XMMS on Lucid Maverick Natty Oneiric Pangolin Raring

    ok so now we have "non-library" players like Audacious, QMMP and Deadbeef so XMMS is old hat
    but it still has a lot going for it

    Great clear sound for starters




    here i offer you a few routes to install XMMS some will work for you better than others due to your version of Ubuntu or even similar distros (MInt etc...)




    On Pangolin





    On Oneiric



















    1 [ this is the route i took for Pangolin]


    Ibidem PPA -- you will probably need the dependencies contained in first 9 boxes of 2. Long route below if your version is newer than Lucid SO do those nine boxes first then go to here and use PPA as you would for Lucid [change version to Lucid in software sources]


    1 B.the easy way (requires python-software-properties, usually present)
    Code:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adamkoczur/gtk1.2
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ibid-ag/oldgtk1
    sudo apt-get update
    Then install xmms and any extras you want: (First set Ibidem software sources to Lucid )






    Code:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xmms
    for example...


    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xmms-skins xmms-xf86audio xmms-wavpack xmms-coverviewer xmms-midi





    2. Long route

    It takes about an hour to fully install but is worth the effort



    So here a few tips


    I was asked for x-dev at some point so i have zipped and added it to the next post

    first the best guide to install the basics is here
    originally posted by ihitf13anddied

    and goes like this


    1. Add the necessary repositories to software sources system/admin/software sources








    then to the terminal


    Code:
     sudo apt-get update
    to make sure those new sources we have just added are seen


    2. GTK1.2 is broken in Karmic, we must fix that:


    Code:
     sudo apt-get build-dep libglib1.2-dev



    I was asked for x-dev at this point so i have zipped and added it to the next post



    Code:
     apt-get -b source libglib1.2-dev


    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i libglib1.2-dev_1.2.10-19build1_*.deb libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_*.deb


    Code:
     sudo apt-get build-dep libgtk1.2


    Code:
     apt-get -b source libgtk1.2


    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_*.deb libgtk1.2-common_1.2.10-18.1build2_all.deb libgtk1.2-dev_1.2.10-18.1build2_*.deb
    3. Next we rebuild XMMS


    Code:
     sudo apt-get install fakeroot


    Code:
     sudo apt-get build-dep xmms


    Code:
     sudo apt-get -b source xmms



    4. Now that we have the support, we can install XMMS:


    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i xmms_1.2.11-1_amd64.deb
    for 64-bit


    or

    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i xmms_1.2.11-1_i386.deb
    for 32-bit

    THIS IS THE BASIC setup

    Code:
    xmms
    in your terminal will now open the program on your desktop

    Then and to my mind the good stuff is adding all the lossless plugins so here goes

    I have placed a lot of them in a zip attached below




    you need to place these into /home/yourname/.xmms/Plugins


    or /and to
    Code:
    sudo cp * /usr/lib/xmms/Input
    to find the folder do crtl/H as it is a hidden folder (if it is not there yet create it name it .xmms then name another inside of it "Plugins" and place them there)


    ALSO YOU WILL for some of them NEED EXTRA PACKAGES (some of the .so files work by simply being placed in the .xmms/Plugins folders) Extra packages also attached





    FLAC find it in the attached Plugins collection attached below for 64-bit use this one


    SHORTEN

    for shorten you need xmms-shn-2.4.0 (attached)

    to make sure shorten is on your system you will need shorten-3.6.1 (attached)


    if you want SHORTEN for 64-bit click here also on page further down as attachment

    WAVPACK

    ok wavpack is fine too you need xmms-wavpack-1.0.2 (attached)

    and to install it you need to first install libwavpack-dev from the synaptic

    For xmms-wavpack for 64-bit see ibidem's instructions here

    APE

    you need
    libmacinput.so in zipped attachment

    you may also need to download the i386 libstdc++ package

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i3...dc++5/download


    that it says jaunty is not a problem works in Lucid fine

    TTA true audio

    to install true audio you need ttaenc-3.4.1-src (attached)

    then you need to place libxmms-tta.so (attached) in /home/yourname/.xmms/plugins



    MP4-AAC aac/m4a/mp4 (but sadly not alac)

    you need xmms-mp4 (attached in next post) OR xmms-faad2( do not install both as they may clash) (attached in next post) both contain libmp4.so

    on my system xmms-faad2 went in straight xmms-mp4 requires
    libfaad0 (attached further on down this page) your choice...


    CUEFILE


    if you like to use cuefiles there is a cunning add-on which reads them (attached)

    once installed go options/preferences/general plugins/enable

    IT WORKS PERFECTLY WITH WAVE FILES AND WITH APE i have had no success with flac so if you want to see your track data decompress to wav.






    Finally many good skins here on
    http://www.1001skins.com/ also o the winamp site; only use the .wsz type



    as regard the equalizer go into /home/yourname/.xmms/ find eq.preset and replace with /or create it i use mousepad to do that

    there you are if i think of any more info i will add/ please add any other tips you see i have missed


    1. tip number one if sound not coming out check you output plugin (options/preferences/output plugin)

    on Lucid Esound is the best one for my system for some unknown reason with alsa tracks refuse to move to the next one at the end of play but fine on Esound





    ►►►►►►►Hotkeys for xmms and here with Compiz



    summarized


    ==============

    if you simply want to start XMMS with one hotkey and and you have compiz

    open CCSM/commands enter

    xmms --t

    then click on Key bindings and pick a hotkey say F6

    This is the fastest most efficient way to open the program and pause and play






    ================================================== ================
    ================================================== ==============


    There is also a different route suggested here not used it myself but i am told it is good too.

    Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    also

    To create a launcher

    right-click on desktop then create launcher xmms command xmms

    and then if you want an interesting icon pick one of the official ones or alternative ones I and others have designed


    attached below


    once you have the one you want you can change its size with right-clickon the icon and stretch icon


    Beyond 11.04 you will probably need to do this first

    MP4-AAC aac/m4a/mp4 (but sadly not alac)

    you need xmms-mp4

    anyone could think of a way to add alac functionality to xmms?

    Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    64-bit
    ======


    You can install with attached debs here

    xmms-flac
    xmms-shn
    xmms-cueinfo




    xmms-mac attached here


    requires

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ibid-ag/oldgtk1
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    then

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install monkeys-audio
    NB: If you have this version mac_3.99-u4-b5-s6~lffl~lucid~ppa4_amd64.deb of mac installed remove it first as it will clash with the new one from Ibidem's PPA



    also in the same way with the ibidem ppa [This way works for 32-bit and 64 alike] again thank you so much ibidem for all the work on these


    you can install coverviewer [for album art] and xmms-wma also xmms-crossfader and xmms-cueinfo and xmms-mp4plugin for aac and mp4 xmms-mac for ape files and xmms-wavpack all in one go


    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xmms-crossfader xmms-wma xmms-cueinfo xmms-mp4plugin xmms-coverviewer xmms-mac xmms-wavpack

    easier?


    I have also placed all lossless plugins in a zip ►►► xmms 64 lossless and mp4.zip[ flac wavpack shorten] ape [mac] is linked below

    For 64-bit unpack and move to /usr/lib/xmms/Input

    Thumbs down Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    Hi Shantiq,

    Thank you for providing these instructions.

    I have tried going through them twice, and this does not work for me. I am running a new Ubuntu Lucid install, on a single core AMD Athlon 64 bit 3500 and 2 GB RAM.

    I do not have any folder labelled ".XMMS", so I cannot put the plugins you provided in the Plugins folder.

    Help, please

    Thank you.

    Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    no problem Hattieh

    one has to create it is the answer go into your home folder

    do control(ctrl) H and then you see all the other folders with .

    for example .icons and .local


    So simply right click on the folder page and create a folder called
    .xmms and inside of it one called Plugins

    And now place your plugins in there .xmms/Plugins

    Best of luck

    Re: Tips to install XMMS on Lucid

    ok nearly there

    uninstall xmms-faad2 first

    do
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -r xmms-faad2

    and reinstall libfaad0_2.6.1-3.1_i386.deb
    and xmms-mp4 again

    and this time it will work


    this is the line which tells you where the problem is


    Code:
    trying to overwrite `/ usr/lib/xmms/Input/libmp4.so" which is also in package xmms-faad2 0:2.0-1

    you cannot run xmms-faad2 and xmms-mp4 at the same time


    they clash


    this time you get there ))))


    and you will see this


    Suerte con todo Aldo
