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!
