Guayadeque

Post by BubbaBlues » Sun Jun 03, 2018 6:18 pm

My only request/suggestion is to add Guayadeque music player to the Mint repos. http://www.guayadeque.org/
This outstanding music player is better than amarok in my opinion and no other Linux music player even comes close.
It's a simple task to add their ppa to your system and download the deb package, but it would be nice to just get
it from the software manager. I love it, especially the shoutcast radio feature.
Thanks

guayadeque is in the Mint repositories, has been, still there even for Mint 19.
Perhaps not the latest release though. I have it on one system. It looks and works well
but it's just a lot more music player/management than I need.

That's funny, I've searched for it a half dozen times and it never showed up. And
it isn't listed in the software manager.

It is most certainly there. Software Manager--type 'guayadeque' in search box

Not easy to find when searching categories though :?
If you know the name (or even close to the name) Synaptics Package Manager is the best go-to for new packages.

Then why doesn't it show up when you search for it in synaptic?
And why isn't it in the list in software manager under sound and video?
I can make it show up too after I add the ppa myself.

I don't know Bubba, are you mispelling?

Did I misspell it above? It is not listed until I add the ppa myself.
And it hasn't been for the last three releases of Mint KDE

Oh well it isn't that big of a deal. Not worth arguing over.

Guayadeque, nowhere to be found on my system either :?

Code: Select all

~ $ apt policy guayadeque
guayadeque:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.

Well that 'splains it. I always thought all used the same repos. Well you never stop learning I guess.
Sorry, I didn't mention KDE originally. :oops:
