Audacious 3.2.3

Interesting news for all Lubuntu users, because the default audio player of the distro, Audacious, has been update, but don't think about big changes on the interface or such, this version solves the folowing bugs:

  • jump to song search results do not include songs not yet scanned for metadata (bug #91)
  • equalizer presets don't survive app restart (bug #99)
  • add MimeType=inode/directory; to audacious.desktop (feature #102)
  • jump to song doesn't respond to enter at the first place (bug #108)
  • HSP file causes segfault (bug #111)
  • ogg vorbis detection and linking issues (bug #113)
  • show song numbers and leading zeroes not adopted directly (bug #114)

Audacious will be updated soon on Lubuntu systems but, if you want to have them fixed now, you'll need to install via the WebUpd8 PPA. Instructions (with a terminal):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y audacious audacious-plugins

Via Ubuntips.


  1. Audacious should be promoted while installing lubuntu, just as all the others apps included in the distro!

  2. Yes, the installer lacks the Audacious info. I've made this slides and noticed about to change, but it was too late for uploading packages. This is a fix I'll do next time.

  3. Audacious is great player :D
