I recently learned about a good media player for Ubuntu called Songbird.
I downloaded the .tar.gz file from http://www.getsongbird.com/, and unloaded it to my desktop. I read from one of the post on the site that I needed to move it to my home folder and just click on the songbird file. This has failed. Nothing happens. I see three files by the name "songbird", songbird, songbird.ini, & songbird-bin. The ini file opens up text, the -bin file does nothing, and the songbird file ask me "Run in Terminal - Display - Cancel - Run". But I'M not having any luck with these options either. Thanks for any all all help.
I also found a dep package out there somewhere but once it installed I couldn't get it to load, it would just start to open and then, nothing.
