I have installed Ubuntu 8.10, in my laptop. I have tried using the default player, Rhythm box, but I am looking for a nicer one. And I have gone through some turbulences searching for one, I tried learning the way to install it, even some great attempts, it is "hard". :D

Can you give me some nice instructions on any of the audio players -- installation process, which you think is good?

Thank you very much.

I like xine, another popular one is xmms. And VLC is kind of a general purpose audio/video player that will do damn near anything.

I've always had trouble with XMMS, but maybe they've improved it since I last used it 5 years ago. I generally don't listen to music on my Linux box, but one of my roommates does and I believe he uses RhythmBox since it tries to emulate iTunes to an extent.

VLC will play just about anything, but I wouldn't recommend it for managing any moderately-sized music collection.

And if you have an ipod, there is a program called banshee (I think) that will in fact sync your music back and forth with the ipod and pretty damn near any other portable music player.

Hi spork, kc0tma,
Sorry, my late to reply. Actually, I was trying to copy the files into my computer. (ripped). But I could not -- I have no idea why, both using Rhythmn box and VLC. It is okay, I will look for alternative ways.

Thank you.

If you're just looking to rip CDs to your computer, grip should do the trick.

Thanks spork. At the moment I think I am going to listen to ripped music with my Vista.
