Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal comes with the Banshee Media Player. However, most of the previous version of Ubuntu have used the Rhythmbox Media Player, and you might prefer Rhythmbox over Banshee. Fortunately, it’s quite simple to install Rhythmbox on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.
Here’s how to do it.
First, go to a Terminal window. You can get there by clicking on the Dash (the Ubuntu icon in the upper-left hand corner of your screen), searching for “Terminal”, and clicking the Terminal icon when it appears.
When the Terminal window opens, type this command:
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox
Enter your password to authenticate, and apt will download and install Rhythmbox for you. After the installation is complete, you can launch Rhythmbox by returning to the Dash, searching for “Rhythmbox”, and clicking on the program’s icon.
