Foobar2000 under Wine in Ubuntu

Filed under
HowTos

The newest version of Wine (Windows API Linux emulator) allows one to run foobar2000 with most of its plugins in Linux. At last ColumnsUI works correctly! There are a few inconveniences, of course, but more on that later. Let’s check them then!

This Howto is based on the Ubuntu system. Installation of Wine on other GNU/Linux systems shouldn’t differ much, though.

1. Using Ubuntu we have no access to the root account. All commands with root rights are performed with the help of the sudo command. In the case of other systems users should use the su command.

2. Wine can be installed in Ubuntu with the help of apt-get. For other distros, one use should run the appropriate package managers (yum, yast, urpmi, etc.) belonging to the distro’s pool of tools.

Preparation

We will need:

* foobar2000
* Wine’s latest release

Ubuntu tablet and smartphone: a personal "mini" review

So when Ubuntu and Canonical revealed they were partnering with actual, big manufacturers for Ubuntu mobile devices, a spark of hope was rekindled in my heart. Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now. So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped. Read more
