Running Foobar in Linux

Under 0.9.39 and Foobar 0.9 I found some strange behaviours of the sound 


Like what ? If it is sound distortion, on my sound card I had to use the resampler @ 48000Hz for the sound not to be garbled / strange.

Just tried 0.39 and using JACK as the audio driver I can move window like mad and have 0 skips! yay!

Resample @48000HZ? What exactly does this mean?

What is JACK? Does it work with every soundcard?

is there any special trick to get jack to work with foobar? I have jack running, but when I open foobar, under the output section of the preferences, all I see is Null Output.

You must select it as the wine audio driver using winecfg. Then it should appear in foobar sound conf, provided jackd is operational.

hmm in winecfg I see no option so select jack. I know jack is running, because I'm able to get my MIDI keyboard connected to a few synth programs with jack, and they work fine...

Is jack support something that has to be specially compiled into wine or something? Maybe my wine (from the ubuntu repo's) doesn't have wine support...

edit:

this was taken while jack was up and running

I installed jack started jack. Then I started foobar2000.I tsrated Jack audio server and the winecfg then I could choose JACK. 
Is there the possibility to run run jack when starting foobar automatically?

I am running Feity fawn.

But although the soudn seems to be okay now the visualisatiion stutters 

Also the playbacktime isn't konstantly updating. Someonelse got this?

I'm just trying out Ubuntu and i would like to have foobar play my files. I followed the guide in the first post, but i get an error when trying to start foobar from the menu:
Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/foobar2000" (Permission denied)
Offcourse i see there is something wrong with the permissions, but how do i solve this?

Also when i try to start foobar from a terminal with: wine -l ja_JP foobar2000.exe
i get the error: wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\-l.exe": Module not found

I would really appreciate the help getting my way with wine and ubuntu

wine -l ja_JP foobar2000.exe

I thing this is wrong. Let the bold text away.

go to your directory /home/user(or what your name is)/.foobar2000

Choose the foobar2000.exe rightclick and then open with wine.
This should run foobar.

I had some problems too with creating a shell script.

Just a thought, but if/when JACK gets completely ported to Windows, would it be possible to add a patch so it would be possible run the Windows version through WINE, connect foobar2000 to that via a plugin, and then connect the Windows JACK to a native one? Sounds like a lot of work, but shouldn't that eliminate any dropout/other audio issues?

The audio dropout problem has been fixed with wine 0.9.39 at least for me and a few other people.

For me wine 0.9.40 and Jack work perfectly

Does anyone else notice a big regression with the latest 0.9.41? After upgrading this weekend all the stuttering seems to be back.

I get messages that jack isn't found. This is really a pitty. I was very complicated to downgrade.

foobar2000 works very well for me with the ALSA driver in wine 0.41. In fact it works so well I'm thinking about using it not just for tagging but for playback as well.

I'd rather not downgrade either. I'm more inclined to leave my Linux partition alone for the next two weeks and only use Windows. Perhaps I'll figure out where and how to report regressions to the Wine team though.
Btw I didn't use Jack.

Very interesting, shame I got rid of Kubuntu, would be nice to give it a try.

Well I finally resolved a problem with my account and I updated the first page a bit, cleaning up the part about the basic shell script as most people are not using CJK support and I myself am having problems getting it to work under 64bit. I also updated the script to support running as the default application for an audio file.

I have been noticing the sound becoming more and more stable over the past few builds of wine and currently (0.9.41) the skipping is all but gone, only appearing under heavy system load.

I am unable to get JACK to appear in my winecfg, would anyone be so kind as to link a tutorial somewhere on how to get this up and running?

I played around with Crossover Office for Linux but it didnt seem to make much of a difference to foobar than running it under normal wine.  I also keep a copy of my foobar running in VMware on a fullscreen session tacked to the back of one of my Compiz Fusion cubes.  If you are continuing to experience problems these are some alternative approaches you may wish to explore to enjoy foobar under Linux.

In the latest version jack has problesm but in Version 0.9.40 you just have to install jack then open wincfg and then it should be available as audio driver. It should be simple.

Nope. I was using version .40 and had jack installed, but there was no jack option in the audio panel of winecfg. There is something else needed.

I'm thinking there is some kind of flag you have to add when you compile wine, and if you got it from a repo, most likley it wasn't compiled with that option...

That's probably the problem. At least the latest packages for ubuntu from winhq repo are compiled with JACK support.

huh?

I'm using 0.9.41 straight from the ubuntu repo, and I see no jack option. And it's not like I don;t have jack installed; its installed and working fine with other applications.

Same here. Ubuntu .deb from the budgetdedicated repository (promoted by winehq), but no Jack in Wine.

we're talking about jack support, which is different than just "works well with foobar"
