  1. Hi folks,

    So I'm an Ubuntu novice. Here's what I want to do:

    - Install XMMS using synaptic
    - get a graphical frontend for XMMS (any recommendations?)
    - get an equalizer for XMMS
    - make XMMS work with MP3 & WMA files.

    no clue where to start...

    thanks,

    -'Mage
  2. Just open Synaptic and search for xmms, install the program itself and then look for a front end and any other add ons.

    I really liked xmms however I now use "Audacious". I believe it is a replacement for xmms and is actively being maintained. It even comes with an xmms shell.

    I am actually using Exaile now... I like it thus far.
