Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Audacious is an open-source music player developed in GTK3, having the features of a modern music player, including support for audio effects, equalizer, lyrics and plugins, visualization, support for Winamp skins and support for playlists organized in tabs.
The latest version available is Audacious 3.5, which has been recently released, coming with about 20 new features and bug-fixes. Among others, the playlist tab bar has received some enhancements enabling the users to switch between the playlists via scrolling, Echo, Crossfade and Voice removal effects have been included as default and the settings windows allow the users to easily choose either the GTK interface or the Winamp Classic one. For more information, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Audacious 3.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra and their derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Audacious 3.5.2 on the listed Ubuntu and Linux Mintsystems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the audacious and audacious-plugins packages. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install audacious audacious-plugins
Optional, to remove audacious and audacious-plugins, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove audacious audacious-plugins
Or, you can disable the PPA, remove avidemux2.6 and downgrade all the packages updated via that PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
