Unhappy XMMS Player Issue


Hello Friends

I have installed xmms player to listen mp3 music. Now when i am trying to open any mp3 file, Its is saying :

Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load module "libgnomebreakpad.so": libgnomebreakpad.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Message: device: default

** WARNING **: Failed to open font: "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*".

Sound card is already enabled, as when Linux Starts it play some default sound, any help will be highly appreciable..

Thanks

AMUL

Both of these are just warnings and can be ignored if mp3 playback works.

How did you install xmms?

I'm new to linux. I've been trying to get it to work on my laptop off and on for several years now, starting first with Redhat (version 6 I think) and now trying with Ubuntu 9.04.

I've done a full install using the entire hard drive (no dual boot). So I'm trying it for real this time.

And one of the things I don't like about linux is the media player that it comes with. It looks like it's organized like an ugly Windows Media Player, which I also don't understand/like. I just want to point the thing at the right folders and have it play the music (without having to sort through albums and artists - neither of which have anything to do with how most of my mp3's are organized), which it doesn't seem to want to do.

Oh, and I had to download a plugin to even get it to look at, let alone play mp3's.

Winamp organized my music the way I wanted it to, it had simple, easy to use controls, and it played just about any format I could throw at it.

I never used the ripper in winamp. I used freerip (I think), which worked pretty well most of the time.

So, what I want is an mp3 player that lists my songs by their ID3 tags in a playlist, allows me to organize that playlist any way I want, plays any music format I want, is easy to install and maintain, has easy to understand and use controls (preferably like a stereo), and looks decent.

Is that xmms?

If so, how do I get it installed in Ubuntu?

Please start your own thread next time.

Pick almost any media player, this isn't difficult. Try Amarok (big, lots of features) or Xmms(2) (winamp clone). Install it like you would install any other program on Ubuntu, via Synaptic.
