Hi All,

Not recommended unless your running Saluki.

Following up a suggestion by TheAsterisk!, who recently created a Songbird pet, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=601967#601967, I went to the Nightingale website, http://getnightingale.com/, downloaded the tar.bz2 file and extracted it to a directory which I named nightingale (note the lack of capitals) on my home partition, to wit: /mnt/home.
As I was able to run it from there, I created a pet that creates a menu entry.

I was able to run it from (some, see below) Lupu 5.28 (built in part from Ubuntu binaries) and Saluki, which is a T2 build. Although it installed and "ran" in Slacko (which uses Slackware binaries) and Exprimo (which uses debian binaries), SHOUTcast failed to load any radio stations. Before needlessly installing the pet, I would test Nightingale by clicking its script file, named simply "nightingale," or its binary, named "nightingale-bin." You'll find both in the unpacked nightingale folder.
Edit: Also SHOUTcast failed in Three-Headed-Dog and LupuPlus. I then retried under the two other "Lupus/Lucids" 5.28 on my Grub4dos menu, and even installed 5.25. On all of them Shoutcast failed to load any station I tried. I'm certain it worked on some Lupu, but as I made some changes as to what I was running, I am unable to locate it.
It's a nice app if it works.('Laughing'). When it works, it provides a complete music manager. But if SHOUTcast fails then it provides nothing not already available using pmusic.


Like Songbird, Nightingale is a music manager. My interest in Nightingale was primarily because it provides access to SHOUTcast and Last.fm radio. Unlike Songbird, Nightingale is a maintained Linux application.

For those interested, I've attached attached the above mentioned pet. It does not include the Nightingale Application. You, like I, will have to download it and unpack it to a folder named "nightingale" --note, no capitals, and without the quotation marks.

For purists: Although I usually place the executable script, used to call the external program, in /my-applications/bin, for some reason it would not run from there in Lupu. So I placed that script in /usr/bin. The icon would be more appropriate to Songbird, and indeed is called Songbird.png in /usr/share/pixmaps. I chose to use it because I already had it and it was colorful.

Description  Provides Menu entry. Requires download of the actual applications from Nightingale. See text above
