Just curious to see who else is using Soulseek for Linux. Not exactly soulseek per se, but one of the other p2p clients developed for Linux distros.
I just installed Nicotine + (Plus) on my 1.0.8 OS, which is Linux' answer to the Soulseek p2p filesharing client. I must say it's working just fine, although Nicotine's interface is a bit bulky and clumsy compared to slsk's no-frills design.
I first tried to install the Museek package to no avail. The application was "unauthenticated" I believe and my system blocked it. I sorta "chanced" at picking Nicotine+ to install.There was another client called Murmur I passed over and I was becoming confused at my choices.
I understand that different ppa's essentially serve same purposes. But I haven't grasped the different "program" bases like Python, Debian, GTK (am I even making sense)?? I'm still a newbie to Linux and to the techy-side of computers!
So my overall question is: I'm running Lite 1.0.8 32-bit with the PAE kernal installed so what exactly do I look for when choosing the right software to install?
1.0.8 is derived from Ubuntu 12.04 or rather LUbuntu 12.04 correct? Do I look for 12.04 based packages to install?
I would appreciate any feedback from the LDC!!!
