Subject description: AppImage for 32 & 64-bit
 

https://museeks.io

32-bit AppImage : https://github.com/KeitIG/museeks/releases/download/0.9.0/museeks-i386.AppImage

64-bit AppImage : https://github.com/KeitIG/museeks/releases/download/0.9.0/museeks-x86_64.AppImage

As you know, a 32-bit AppImage is something almost never seen these days. So, thanks to developers.

First, you have to make it executable by doing : chmod +x packagename.

Then you will be asked if you want it to be in your menu and in your tray : Yes No.

So, you don't need to install binaries, though they are available for 32 & 64-bit systems.

Deb did not install in Bionic. Bionic may not be supported yet, but AppImage works.

Complete waste of time.

AppImage loads, and starts up.....no problem. However, the only way to get any music to play is by importing it.....and the import function doesn't work!

Nice idea, but.... Bad Museeks; no cookie!

EDIT:- Correction; my bad.....it does work. Very well, in fact. My problem is that almost my entire music collection was ripped, years ago, in XP, using Windows Media Player. Meaning that it's all .wma format, and a lot of Linux players don't like that.

What's the best way for me to change format from .wma to .mp3? Any ideas?

Hi Mike,

Maybe ffmpeg command line? This this Ubuntu thread: https://askubuntu.com/questions/508278/how-to-use-ffmpeg-to-convert-wma-to-mp3-recursively-importing-from-txt-file

Hi Mike,

Too complex for me too. Laughing

I have no spare brains cells to intentionally memorize anything. So, what I do is

(a) Cut & paste formulas into a txt file; or
(b) If the info is to complex to do that create a text file which provides the url or cut & paste to a Wordprocessing file;

Then copy the file to /mnt/home/my-notes which I try to keep somewhat organized, and

hope I remember that the infos been stored.

A lot? Which ones? Players should have no problem. Mplayer has no problem, my MMview can play it (not much of a player though), and if you want to go really frugal drag /usr/bin/ffplay to the desktop, then drag any .wma file onto the dektop icon. Should play.
May also work with /usr/bin/avplay but haven't tested.

You should make up your mind if you want to play or convert. Standard WMA is lossy, converting may degrade quality further and is slow.
Nevertheless converting with ffmpeg is not rocket sience. I know you can do that!
