Category Archives: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

It almost seems like Rhythmbox returns to Ubuntu Precise 12.04 LTS ?

Amongst the arguments for switching ‘back’ were thoughts to LTS-to-LTS upgrades (Rhythmbox was the default music player in Ubuntu 10.04); the fact that Rhythmbox can deliver a native GTK3 experience in Precise (Banshee GTK3 port is still in development); and then the dedicated developer currently maintaining the app.

There would be a handful of hhiccups to resolve: the Ubuntu One Music store would need to be ported to GTK3, and Unity’s Music Lens would need some minor reconfiguration inorder to search the Rhythmbox library. A switch to Rhythmbox would also free up some much needed space on the Ubuntu CD.
