It seems from this thread that it works with Wine. An other thread discuss Foobar Snap.

Except if you miss some features there are many great alternatives in Linux world.

I doubt that it's possible. The foobar2000 website shows that it is available for Windows, Android and Ios but there are no binaries listed for Linux and there is no listing for it in Synaptic.

foobar2000 is a Windows app that will run on wine. I think those packages you see for Ubuntu are snap packages with all the required bits (ie wine and foobar2000 in one install). If you're talking about such a package then have a look at this, for instance:
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/201 ... ntu-16-04/

There has also been a thread about this: viewtopic.php?t=48002

I have wine-staging installed (not as a snap package, I'm not a fan of these things) and have foobar2000 running on it. It's working flawlessly and everything that I tried works as it does on Windows. YMMV.

I used to think that good grammar is important. Now I know that good wine is importanter.
