Have you tried any of the Linux family tree software? I don't know much about the ones you mention, but have used Gramps

Since halve a year I received many updates for my open Suse for SDR, the software defined radio.

So I assume there is a preferred SDR program already installed in my Suse Linux , but is it ? and how to find it. The updates could be easel y installed with zypper.

I'd love if foobar2000, a music player, gets a Linux port. It has a great UI and works well with my music files. I use cmus, which is the next best thing, but foobar the program I miss the most since switching from Windows.

The Linux kernel has had usb support for a couple of decades.

Cell phones are usually mounted as mtp devices. Look at how mtp devices are mounted, either manually, or with udisks, whatever Mint uses.

No, windows executables don't run in Linux. And a valve cover made for a ford won't fit a chevy.
If you want to run windows executables then look at wine or crossover office. Or run them in...windows.

What does Linux Mint's docs tell you about usb devices?
https://linuxmint.com/documentation.php

Make a thread showing the instuctions that you followed, where it failed, and what error you are getting. There is also a Mint forum

it is said that deadbeef comes pretty close to that. loads of plugins, too. and they have a standalone version for download, in case your distro's version is too old.

I tried deadbeef a long time ago and didn't like it. I've been happy with mpd/ncmpcpp and, later, cmus for a while. However, I would try DF again and see if things improved.

Deadbeef has just had a major upgrade, apparently.
