Download
To download Music Player for Linux (version: 1.0, size: 1 Mb), just use one of these links:

Compatibility
Music Player is fully compatible with Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions, more information can be found here.
The program also is compatible with Linux 64 bit, with the following notes.

Zero install
The program does not need to be installed. Just extract the files from the .tar.gz archive into a directory of your choice and start the program from there. You might need to adjust the program's file permissions to 'executable'.

Portability
Music Player is fully portable because it has no need for installation. Therefore, instead of copying it to your main drive, you can just as well copy the program to a USB stick and start it directly from there (you might need to adjust the executable file permission of the program).

Notes for Linux distributions other than Ubuntu
This program has been developed and tested extensively on Ubuntu 8.x and 10.x (32-bit and 64-bit) inside a virtual machine and also directly on a hardware computer system. Obviously, we cannot promise that this program will run flawlessly on ALL possible Linux distributions since there are many differences between them. It is important to realize that some Linux distributions (by default) are not configured very well for real-time multi-media playback. They might - for instance - not allow Music Player to increase the priority of its output process while this is important for uninterrupted playback.

Notes for Linux 64-bit
Since Music Player is a 32 bit program - when running it on 64-bit Linux you need to have the standard 32-bit libraries ia32-libs installed (usually these libraries are present, but if not than they can be easily obtained through your package manager).
