What works

Installed foobar2000 1.3.8 fine using the latest version (as of April 20th, 2015) of Winetricks. I just had to rename the installer from foobar2000_1.3.8 to foobar2000_1.3.6 to get the Winetricks script to work.

  • Theme files install fine.
  • Library auto updates fine.
  • Auto playlists work!
  • Music does play, but I had some issues on my hardware-- see below.

What does not

  • Visualizers don't work.
  • You have to minimize and reopen foobar2000 to get some UI elements to redraw properly, such as when adding/removing a UI element or resizing the window.
  • Audio stutters badly under heavy CPU load. Not sure what's going on there-- something's funky with WINE's audio passthrough to pulse. I fixed that using the foo_out_upnp foobar2000 plugin and gmrender-resurrect to bypass WINE's audio stack entirely.
  • Media keys-- my laptop's keyboard has back, play/pause, and forward (fn+F10-F12) but I can't get them to work under Cinnamon.


What was not tested

  • The equalizer plugin, etc.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Use winetricks allfonts, and (choose option 3) to make the fonts look better! Applies to a lot of programs under Wine, but foobar2000 was especially ugly out of the box. :)
