Installing (use the howto)
Playing & conÂnecting to the database (install it with the latest winetricks)
Slideshow/Image viewer from booklet
Automatic & manual import data from allmusic.com
Lastfm configuration (don't connect with other programs/plugins to lastfm in the same time)
Party mode, touch mode, equalizer, minilyrics
What does not
ÂÂÂÂAutomatic & manual import covers from Amazon
ÂÂWindow issues; you cannot minimize the window, it doesn't respond &
the program disappears from the task-list if you do.
Maximize is possible but not after a minimize, unmaximize does not respond either.ÂÂ Â
ÂBrowsing covers is a bit slow, it needs the DIB engine ÂÂ
Albumplayer does not resume playing after a pause in Ubuntu Lucid with the default pulse-audio setup (see the extra comments for workarounds)l
What was not tested
Addons; Cd-Art Display, Evellyrics, some Winamp plugins
(adons were working in previous versions, most likely it still will)
Intelliremote + Intelliphone (control AlbumPlayer with a profile from your iPod Touch or iPhone) Â Â
With the default pulse-audio setup in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04, Albumplayer can not resume playing after a pause.. To use ALSA-only in Ubuntu 10.04 you either need to remove pulseaudio or stop it from auto-spawning. To disable auto-spawn, edit or create the file ~/.pulse/client.conf and add a line containing "autospawn = no" there. I ended up completely removing pulse. Code: sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-alsa gnome-alsamixer sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio *Note, this will also remove the volume-applet* Another alternative which you can try is Wine with pulse-audio enabled https://launchpad.net/~neil-aldur/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=lucid https://launchpad.net/~c-korn/+archive/ppa

Install the following way in a terminal, use the wineprefix command for installation in a clean environment You need to have (the latest) winetricks installed cd ~/ && wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks && chmod +x winetricks env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x sh winetricks corefonts mdac28 jet40 msxml4 directx9 ie6 wininet dotnet20 env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine '/path/to/albumplayer_setup5x.exe' (install AlbumPlayer V5.x) env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine regedit Go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command" Edit and change it to C:\windows\system32\winebrowser.exe -nohome "%1" (Set native firefox as the default browser) env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine "C:\Program Files\AlbumPlayer\AlbumPlayer.exe"
A webpage request from within Albumplayer does open up the wine browser, but not the native Linux browser.
Open regeditor with
"wine regedit" in terminal, (use the env Wineprefix if applied earlier in the Additional Comments)
Go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command"
Edit and change it to C:\windows\system32\winebrowser.exe -nohome "%1"
It now launches the native Linux browser.
It works, but has some startup problems.
Best way is to start it manual twice, three or four times (shortly after each other) while playing a song
Works now with ie6 & wininet installed,
Follow the howto
In WINE 1.1.30 (and perhaps later versions) there are database connection errors. (bug 20225)
Run "env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap51 wine winecfg"
and go to libraries, add"OLEDB32.DLL" and set it to native,
if you installed mdac28 already you need to reinstall it once again.
