Tip: Dedicated Last.fm Client

Last.fm is a music service that learns what you like and plays appropriate songs and lets you choose songs based on taxonomy. I used to listen to it using the KDE Amarok player which is otherwise excellent, but its Last.fm playback is often buggy.

A few days ago I decided to see if there's a better client out there, so I searched for "Last.fm Linux client" and ended up at this page for the official Last.fm client for Linux. It's open-source and free of malware, and works much better than Amarok. I installed it on Mandriva using the "urpmi lastfm-player" command, and there are probably packages for other distributions.

There are similar clients for Windows and Mac OS X. This client works much better than Amarok and I find Last.fm much more enjoyable now. But I guess I'll now have to debug the Last.fm support of Amarok on my machine to see where things go awry.

Happy listening!

is this what you do all day? change wallpapers, listen to music, watch youtube, and upgrade your mandriva? and you're over 30 years old and still live with your parents?

you need a job and FAST.

Go Away!
Dear Shai,

I won't respond to your over-generalising accusations, but will just note that I had it with you. I won't delete your comment, because you've identified yourself, but since you're obviously a troll, I'm not interested in hearing from you again. Please stop responding to my blog. If not, your future comments will be promptly deleted.

Have a good life, and I hope that in future you'll make a better use of your time, than trolling on the blogs of honest people.

Why the different picture?
Hi Shlomif,

I want to know why sometimes you post with the picture of the fish from userfriendly and sometimes you post with the picture of the female fox.

Re: Why the different picture?
Hi Avraham,

well, LiveJournal lets one specify several user pictures, and choose which one to use for any post. So far I have two, and choose which one based on what I feel or wish to convey for the post. Don't try to over-diagnose it.

I should note that some people upgrade their LJ accounts just so they can have more user pictures.
