Thread: Linux and OS X Version

  1. #21

    Re: Linux and OS X Version

    This is a so necessary, I have not found a single capable music player for Linux that works the way I want it to aka the way foobar works.

    I would happily pay for an OSX version for foobar2000.

    I too would happily pay for a native Linux port of foobar2000. Honestly, there is no player I'd use instead - Windows or Linux - that even comes close to fb2k. Hopefully, porting it will become easier after the Android/iOS versions roll out.

    Re: Linux and OS X Version

    I don't know if this has ever been answered before but why is foobar2000 not open source? I can't immediately think of a reason but making it open source would allow people to port it over to linux which would be great since I am actually desperate enough to use wine just to get foobar running because there is no comparable music player on linux.

    Many times, a relevant quote being:

    Re: Linux and OS X Version

    I just run it in Wine on my Macbook, there's no drag and drop functionality and If I rezise the bars at the top, they just reset the next time I open, but otherwise it's still my go to player on both PC and Mac (and hopefully Android in the future!)

    Re: Linux and OS X Version

    A native port would have working Drag and Drop support. That limitation is due to Wine not supporting that on Mac OS X.
