 +===== Linux ===== 
 +Like I say in the intro, there'​s no Linux version, so here'​re some tips to get it running under [[Arch Linux]] with [[Wine]]: 
 + 
 +  - Use the AUR package: [[aur>​foobar2000]]. A default Wine prefix will hog resource sa bit and my lag, so if you want to skip the AUR package you'll have to learn a bit about prefixes, or use something like [[PlayOnLinux]] maybe? 
 +  - **Font troubles:** Make sure you have the fonts you need installed //in Wine//. The tricky thing is that I can't just run it in say the JP locale, because I have music from different places that use different character sets. I know [[arch>​noto-fonts-cjk]],​ and [[aur>​noto-fonts-cjk-otf]] didn't help. Nor did installing the Takao font with WineCFG, but selecting the option that installs a bunch of CJK fonts seems to work?! \\ See: [[wine#​fonts]],​ [[archw>​Wine#​Fonts]]. 
 +  - **Sound troubles:** Make sure you have libraries installed for the sound stuff: Pulse ([[arch>​lib32-alsa-lib]],​ [[arch>​lib32-alsa-plugins]]) and ALSA ([[arch>​lib32-libpulse]]) / JACK (?).\\ See: [[archw>​Wine#​Sound]].
  
 ===== Mobile ===== ===== Mobile =====
 +nbjp I now have a different phone, so just stream the music from my NAS. I'll leave this stuff here in case it helps people though!

 **Foobar 2000 Mobile** is still very much a work-in-progress,​ but I find it does what I want. I haven'​t actually looked into any other music players for my [[Android]] phone, yet. **Foobar 2000 Mobile** is still very much a work-in-progress,​ but I find it does what I want.
