On foobar2000: take a look at deadbeef in the repos. Not a complete replacement but many have argued it is the closest native player to foobar. It's the one I use most of the time.

Thanks, I'll definitely check this one out. The screenshots do look very similar but of course there's more to it than screen cosmetics:-) eg the whole conversion functionality. But if deadbeef turns out to be "similar enough" then this alone would make this thread worthwhile for me!

To add to the musical theme: as replacement for mp3tag (a really competent music file tagger), puddletag looks rather good. Oh, so many things, so little time :-/

Indeed! I've played with it for a while now and it's not bad at all. The only major thing that seems to be missing is the database functionality. There's a rudimentary search function that may be enough in most cases... I will have to see. I'd prefer a native player because foobar2000 under wine is pretty slow in opening the directory with the music (loads of subdirectories).

There's one other small problem: when copying massive amounts of stuff (in other apps) the playback occasionally stutters a bit. I am pretty sure this is not a problem of the player though. (I thought we had left these things behind... in the old days, my Win2k machine would sometimes do the same.)

So I definitely owe you a beer or a cider or whatever else is your preferred tipple:-)

Glad that helped. One of the things I like, since I play a lot of internet radio during work, is that it retains the last station played so that, when I launch it, it begins to play right away without any fussing from me.

Please Mr Foobar make native Linux version :crossfingers: ..This is the only program from windows that I miss in linux. Deadbeef is ok as a player it just needs a columns UI and a better way of handling library's and you can't use more then one of the same component that a time ...
I must have a look at AppImage never through you could have portable apps on Linux.I have heaps for windows.

Tixati is windows Linux torrent down loader The best I have ever used.

Have you tried running it under Wine, then?

Don't know about KoO, but I have. It runs w/o a hitch, everything I tested worked well. My only gripe, as stated above, is that it takes a while to open my Music directory... that is probably due to the overhead of providing information for almost 1000 level-1 subdirectories into foobar2000's "Add folder..." dialogue box.

I have foobar install on linux with wine but is their anyway I can link to my library on /media/koo/Storage/ which is E:/ on windows.
I have also copied over my user components if I change to columns UI it crashes.Was a portable install.
I may just have to rebuild my windows version in linux instead.
Have using the same portable install of columns ui for about 5 years just updating the version,components and scripts as time goes by.

I've never used the columns UI, so can't say anything about that. Perhaps you could try to talk to the developer... quite a few people are realising that their software is increasingly used under wine and are perfectly willing to adapt it (within reason) if there are problems.
