Well I never did manage to get Streamtuner to work. Has anyone else had any luck with it, and if so care to share? Also if anyone can recommend a similar program please do. I like the idea of a stand alone Internet radio tuner, but I can't seem to find another alternative. I am trying Tunapie right now. It has a decent listing of stations, but does not have an embedded player, so I have it set to use Totem to launch streams.
Edit: Here is some info I found on the Ubuntu forums.
[markbuntu]Streamtuner was written for xmms which is deprecated, i.e. no longer supported, a new version is on its way that will work without xmms.
This might explain why even after I changed the launch command in the Streamtuner preferences from xmms to xmms2 that it didn't work.
Edit2: In case anyone else wants to try Tunapie here is a link to a .deb package from Debian (version 2.1.8 ) that is newer than the one in the Ubuntu repos (version 2.1.5).http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/tunapie/download
