MediaMonkey on ubuntu (or linux)

Post by Blumbly » Wed Aug 03, 2016 12:44 am

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.

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 ( 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

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.

Media Monkey on ubuntu (or linux)

Post by Fiman » Mon Aug 19, 2019 4:07 am

Hi all I'm still new to ubuntu but so far loving working with it. I have all but one of my systems working on it now,except for one. The only reason I haven't changed it over is I use it to play my music when I'm working downstairs. Now it is still running windows and the program I use on it is called Media Monkey. Totally awesome media program. Now I've been trying to find something in the ubuntu software section but I'm not finding any program like it.
So I've been searching online and have found on the forum for media monkey a way that it could run. However I've tried that and I can't even find the software that it was talking about,something about (playonlinux) it is called.
So what I wanted to know is anyone aware of a way I can run media-monkey on ubuntu? Please,as then I'd get the best of both worlds. An awesome os and an awesome media program.
I really hope someone can help me with that.
Sorry to sound despeate but I really don't want to lose this program. It really is the bees kness of media software.
