    First try, requires first post


    i have recently installed ubuntu on an old tower. the purpose of which is to eventually convert over to a jutebox.

    After some searching i found that the best program for the job will probably be a program called tvjutebox

    in the readme the programer vaguely gives instructions on how to create a make file and that is supposed to execute the file. i cant get this to work and do not understand the language.

    if sombody could walk me through the installation, point me towards a good resource, or just give me an idea another comparable program i could install, i would be obliged

    My simple solution for using one of my Towers to blare music in my motorcyle shop.

    I installed a light-weight terminal streaming application pianobar for playing my pandora radio account.

    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy pianobar
    pianobar:
      Installed: 2011.01.24-2
      Candidate: 2011.01.24-2
      Version table:
     *** 2011.01.24-2 0
            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main i386 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    For playing stored music on my Hardrive like .mp3, .ogg or .wav I installed and use Qmmp and Goggles Music Manager.

    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy qmmp
    qmmp:
      Installed: 0.5.0-2
      Candidate: 0.5.1-1
      Version table:
         0.5.1-1 0
    $ apt-cache policy gogglesmm 
    gogglesmm:
      Installed: 0.12.1-1
      Candidate: 0.12.1-1
      Version table:
     *** 0.12.1-1 0
    For Ubuntu. I would look at Exaile. Should be in Ubuntu Package Manager.

    My setup uses a earbud jack that splits into 2 rca stereo input jacks It plugs into my souncard input jack in back of Desktop. Rca input jacks are plugged into a 200 watt per channel pioneer amplifier in
    Aux jack input jack. Speakers hang from ceiling. It;s loud when I want it to be.

    Code:
    $ pianobar

    You should try using what is available in your Ubuntu package manger synaptic,software center,or apt-get. It is just easier to set up and use.

    I'm sure other members who run Ubuntu here can suggest other formats to use also. Good luck with it.

    Happy Trails, Rok

    are any of the solutions you suggested a jutebox style interface. i eventually would like to go to a touchscreen, i plan on building a wood enclosure for it and making it a self contained unit. first i need to get software up and running though.......

    Sorry No. I have full control of my media boxes. No one else touches them.

    here is a Ubuntu deb package though I don;t know what Ubuntu you are running

    Ubuntu -- Details of package jajuk in natty

    You can search in synaptic for jajuk also.
