Not sure if this is in the right topic heading or not.I don't think so sorry if it caused someone extra work.Sorry for that.
One of the biggest things I would like to know is.Is there a MediaMonkey that can run on ubuntu/Linux?
As I've had a lot of problems with windows and have changed my os over.The biggest problem with changing over is I don't want to lost my MediaMonkey.
Does anyone know if there is a version that will run on it?
Or is there some way it can be run on it?
It is just such an awesome program and I really don't want to have to lose it.
Thanks

No .. currently MediaMonkey requires windows. You would use sw to create a VME though not familiar enough with with Linux myself to point you to the best sw.

I personally have 2 Lifetime Gold Licenses bought many many years ago, which basically sit unused with backup windows installations that I rarely open.

I run Linux (Sparkylinux - based on Debian Testing - with Enlightenment) and I too very much missed MediaMonkey.

I have found GMusicBrowser to be an acceptable alternative until such time as I can use MM on linux.
I basically followed VastOne's instructions on CrunchBang (crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=20323) using the Z_ICE_V0.2 for the player window layout.
It's not MediaMonkey, but quite usable for large collections until such time as MediaMonkey arrives for Linux.
Hope it helps in the meantime

Luck

I have been using MM on Ubuntu with WINE for over half a year now, using my old DB with a custom Skin (so it looks decent), Wifi Synch also works (although the profile was created on Windows originally). There's some minor bugs but there's workarounds.
Still hoping for a native Linux version.
