Question Gutsy: xmms-flac???


Hi Folks,

I just installed the new release 7.10. What annoys me is that the old xmms-flac plugin is gone, forcing me to use xmms2.
I do not want xmms2, I prefer to use xmms because it is easy to use.
Where is the xmms-flac plugin available?

Kind regards.

xmms has been a dead project for several years now. You need to switch to audacious, the true successor to xmms. In spite of the name, xmms2 is a radically different project with a new (server-client) design, but audacious still uses the old the xmms formula and look, just updated and improved. And yes, it includes a flac plugin.
