xmms is not available anymore? [solved]

On every clean install of arch I use xmms... but this isn't on arch's packages

and xmms2 don't works!

How can I make xmms2 works, on kde, or, install xmms?

It looks like GTK+ (version 1) has been purged from Arch Linux. That makes me kind of sad. sad

What "doesn't work" in xmm2?

And, more importantly, why aren't you using audacious instead? wink

One more thing: I just love this section of the FreeBSD manual:

A popular graphical MP3 player is XMMS.

It made me smile. Yes, I'm sure it was at some point. big_smile

I hate Audacious... I don't like it, and I try, but I still don't like it

About xmms2

I install it with pacman... dont create a "visual program" on kde

and, if I type "xmms2" on CLI, nothing but a CLI version opens...I need a "X program" not CLI one

xmms2
Welcome to the XMMS2 CLI shell!
Type 'help' to list the available commands and 'exit' (or CTRL-D) to leave the shell.

I'm looking for another program, like xmms, that has stereo plugin, and "echo plugin", but not audacious

Why do you hate Audacious? I can't suggest another application unless I know what you are looking for.

Install lxmusic or another xmms2 client.

Re: xmms is not available anymore? [solved]

I started use audacious on ubuntu, maybe because it I dislike it

What I need is just a program, winamp like, that allows me listen my music, with simple view, and, that, with 2 or 3 clicks, I make my plugins working.

Audacious makes me feel so "a lot of graphics"...

Maybe on arch it's different from ubuntu. I'm installing Clementine and Audacious for testing, but "the simple way" of xmms I'm looking for

On ubuntu/debian/fedora I compile it... but I haven't found about doing it on arch

Audacious looks exactly the same as XMMS! tongue

Also, it comes with "Echo" and "Extra Stereo" plugins.

Re: xmms is not available anymore? [solved]

Because it's a GTK application, and GTK was purged because it's really really really old.

...but that doesn't mean I don't miss it. sad
