Anybody out there have some experience? Or know of anyone with some experience?
I'd like to be able to listen to my FLAC and SHN files through XMMS like I did with winamp.
Would it be possible for someone to just send (attach) me the .so files and for me to put them in my plug-ins folder? I am having issues finding/installing the input plug-ins.
Cheers,

What distribution of linux do you have? Some ship with packages for the xmms plugins (especially the flac one -- I know Debian does.)

I had to go to another site to get a shn plugin.

What are your "finding/installing" issues?

If you have downloaded the source, but can't compile/install them, then you are probably missing the XMMS "development" package from your distribution. Or in the case of FLAC, maybe you are missing lbFLAC and/or the libFLAC development packages.

But as jazzbo says, your distribution may already include those plugins. In Debian, typing "apt-get install xmms-flac" will do the job.

Thanks guys. I am using Ubuntu
I had to figure out how to install deb packages and once I did I was able to download the two packages for flac (I was missing libflac6) and install them fine.
I followed the instructions (better this time?) and was able to install the shn plug-in.
I am really liking linux.
I just have one more question with wine to be asnwered (its installed but I can't find the fake windows drive) and I am good to go.
Thanks again,
