How to install xmms in linux

How to install xmms in linux?

xmms is a program to play mp3 files in linux, it has its own ecualizer and it looks like winamp for windows.

To install it, we have to get the xmms-1.2.11.tar.gz from the internet and extract the file, then enter to the extracted directory
and write:
./configure –prefix=/usr
sudo make install

if all these lines don’t work, then do

1. sudo apt-get install build-essential

2. sudo apt-get install autotools-dev automake1.9 libtool gettext libasound2-dev libaudiofile-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglib1.2-dev libgtk1.2-dev libesd0-dev libice-dev libmikmod2-dev libogg-dev libsm-dev libvorbis-dev libxxf86vm-dev libxml-dev libssl-dev

(yes, copy all and paste in the terminal)

then go to the extracted file again and do
./configure –prefix=/usr
sudo make install

Finally press ALT + F2, and write: xmms
(to run the program)
