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.

Some may remember Songbird. I used both Windows and Linux version. a very nice intuitive music manager.

Further some may also know that Songbird for Linux was dropped by its developers AND a Linux group has created a less-restricted Open-Source version called "Nightingale".

Nightingale is Linux, current and supported.

The latest tarball is here. Could someone convert it to a PET for the modern PUPPY distros?

Since is XUL based, it should work in either 32bit or 64bit PUPs.

Hi gcmartin,

Your post peeked my interest. So I downloaded and unpacked the Nightingales's archive to mnt/home. I was running Tahrpup 6.05 at the time. Clicking the script named nightingale initiates the GUI. It was able to play some music files I had previously downloaded.

However, I was not able to find an Shoutcast channel which did not report "failed".

As with Songbird, it isn't necessary to create a "full pet". Simply unpack the archive to a folder you've created. "nightingale"--with a small 'n'-- is a good name for that folder. Unpacking the archive doesn't create its own folder. You can place the folder on /mnt/home or /opt. I'll be glad to provide appropriate pets to create menu-listings for either or both such arrangements. But not until someone either figures out how to get shoutcast to work, or explains what I have to do to access radio streams.

Without shoutcast, Nightingale doesn't add anything which Puppy doesn't already have, and have taking up less space.

Subject description: vs nightingale, the Clone....
 

when looking for some music application to run with Slacko, i found an SFS of songbird .Shoutcast sometimes get success.
Nightingale is a clone.. i test that clone. Just for the fun, with Slacko, fun is rare. Saluki is more funny, Saluki est joli, Saluki is one of my prefered puppy.
Smile it's so easy to connect a radio without these applications that i ask myself what they are used for...

let us try nightingale ! With my Puppy Linux of course. Windows 7 is not for Music at Home (for Office Suite and other unpleasant jobs)
