    Great work with the script amed for many platforms.

    Using it on my Pidora without any audio is no good for me. I have activated the libraries, but no sounds is heart.

    Any idea of settings in the player or in the alsa mixer?

    The great XIX Music Player is now working just fine on my Pidora.

    Sounds good using 88 % of the CPU.

    Tested on ArcPi with the same promissing results.

    How do I then run this program? I am using lxde on wheezy, and have followed these instructions. As it is, I’m still stuck with an old version of this program, which I have to log in to the Pi Store to get to. It looks really promising, and would love to try this more recent version.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but is there a way of getting a menu or desktop icon for this? If not, could anyone tell me how to run it through the command line in a terminal?

    Thanks very much 🙂

      run wget
      replace MusicBrowser with XiXMusicPlayerPi
      Under raspbian, your best option is to create a desktop icon for a silly command from the start menu (like task manager) and edit that desktop icon by right clicking on it and selecting Leafpad. Insert the command where MusicBrowser is installed. Then just double click the desktop icon and it should open. Default directory is /home//XiXMusicPlayer if you followed this tutorial.
