Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Rhythmbox 3.0 “I Eat Tapes” has been released at the beginning of September, but it has not been added in any repository since now. It comes with many improvements, new features and bug fixes, for a full list of changes, see the official changelog.
For those who don’t know, Rhythmbox is the default music player, on the Gnome Desktop Environment.
In this article I will show you how to install Rhythmbox 3.0 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia and Pear OS 8.
Because it has been recently added to Ricotz Staging PPA, installing Rhythmbox 3.0 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Pear OS is easy. All you have to do is add the needed repositories, update the local repository index and install the rhythmbox package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/testing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install rhythmbox
