    Thank you for the submission!

    I was able to easily try this out.

    I'm still working on my sound problems but its cool to know there is a Itunes-like categloger for music and its easy to use.

    Thanks again.

    I tried Songbird on Klik, because I thought it would be difficult to install. But this version crashes far less often Looks very promising so far!

    Re: Songbird Media Player

    Nice How-to! Works great, but I have a problem though... How to play last.fm stream? When I click in a radio it says: last.fm is not a registered protocol.

    Thanks!

    I downloaded the file and it installed a folder in some archiver but is doesn't tell you what program it is. Where do i go from there? It looks like it is already extracted. So I don't know if your instructions will work.

    I'm glad it worked.

    For last.fm you have to make sure last.fm player is installed. reda_ea has a good howto for the last.fm player:
    http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=213185

    To install last.fm player:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgconf2-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libgdk-pixbuf-dev libgtk2.0-dev libmono-dev  libgnome2.0-cil mono-mcs mono-gac
    or
    • Open Synaptic Package Manager

    • Install these packages
      • libgconf2-dev

      • libgstreamer0.10-dev

      • libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev

      • libgdk-pixbuf-dev

      • libgtk2.0-dev

      • libmono-dev

      • libgnome2.0-cil

      • mono-mcs

      • mono-gac


    Download the file:
    last-exit_2.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb.tar.bz2
    Untar or Extract the file:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    tar -xjvf last-exit_2.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb.tar.bz2
    or
    • Right Click on last-exit_2.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb.tar.bz2

    • Goto - Extract Here


    Intall last.fm player:
    Code:
    dpkg -i last-exit_2.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb
    or
    • Click on last-exit_2.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb

    • Click on Install Package


    I hope this helps.
