How To Install Listen Music Player in Ubuntu (11.04/10.10)?

If you want a Python written music player that has a very similar interface to Banshee or Rhythmbox ... then you might find Listen Music Player quite comforting. Although it's certainly not a carbon copy of those players and comes with few unique features of its own as well.

Standard features such as accessing audio lyrics directly through the GUI to fetching album related information from online sources, Listen is a pretty cool little app.

Few of the main features...

*. Listen to Shoucast web radio.

*. Podcast support.

*. Large album management.

*. Find Wikipedia information for Artists/Albums, etc.

*. As said, for a unique feature of its own (maybe few other have it...), it can automatically fetch your current playlist related song information from and can create a playlist of its own (including your most favorite ones) as well.

*. As said, this is written using Python rather than GTK or Qt tool-kits, so... quite "fair" for both Gnome and KDE without a doubt :).

*. 10 Band software equalizer.

*. Burn Audio CDs with Brasero (if installed in your GNU/Linux PC-Laptop).

*. Sync with iPad... etc.

Listen music player can be installed in Ubuntu by using the official repository or a PPA (which would contain updated/customized features). For installing it in Ubuntu 11.04/10.10 using the official repository, open your Terminal and issue the below command.
sudo apt-get install listen
For installing using the PPA channel, please use the below command instead.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:listen-devel/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install listen
