You can grab a package from https://launchpad.net/%7Efoobnix-player/+archive/foobnix/+packages as I have done before, but some of these packages just don't work. And installing with gdebi did not pull in all the dependencies ( I also had to install python-dbus, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly ).
Just found out that there is a package at http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ ( unstable/Sid ).
Download foobnix_2.5.23-0.0_all.deb from : http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists/unstable/main/binary-amd64/package/foobnix.php .
Control file of this package contains the following :
Maintainer: Christian Marillat
Depends: python (>= 2.6), python-support (>= 0.90.0), python-chardet, python-gtk2, python-mutagen, python-simplejson, gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, python-gst0.10, python-dbus, python-keybinder, python-notify, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
Recommends: ffmpeg, python-setuptools, fuseiso
Description: Simple and powerful music player for Linux.
All the best features in one player. Written in Python, Foobnix is a small,
fast, customizable, powerful music player with a user-friendly interface.
I used gdebi to install foobnix with all its dependencies.
Searching for songs in the search bar popped up the following window :
Pressing the Open button brought me to a loginpage at Vkontakte.....( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vkontakte ).
Not knowing what to do I went to Preferences > Last FM + VK and pressed the Authorization button : the same window as above came up....
After finding this page : http://www.foobnix.com/blog/1176070?lang=en it appears that we need more packages installed :
apt-get install python-jswebkit
will pull in : python-webkit, libwebkit-1.0-2 and libwebkit-1.0-common.
Now the following window appears when searching for songs :
Just press Get Default Login Password and then hit the blue button :
I download the songs to a folder Music in my home directory.
In the left pane in foobnix : Add Folder(s) in tree ( in my case ~/Music ).
Downloaded songs appear in left pane after updating ( rightclick in left pane > Update ) or go to Preferences > Music Library > check Update library on start .
You can download songs as well at Legalsounds for $0.09 per mp3.
