where did XMMS2 go?

Postby Abbydabs » Thu Jul 05, 2012 3:46 pm

I used synaptic to download and install Songbird and XMMS2. I want to test both of them for best sound quality. Songbird now appears in the "sound & video" menu but XMMS2 does not. I did a search and found a lot of XMMS2 files but I didn't see a file where I could launch the player. I downloaded a couple of chess programs using synaptic and never found them either. I'm new to linux so I could use a little help. Thank you.

Only graphical applications normally have a menu entry. To use xmms2 see http://xmms2.org/wiki/Using_the_application
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
