Once you go foobar2000, you never go back. As I am currently trying to use Linux as my main OS, it became a big annoyance that none of the music players in Linux Mint’s repository were anything like foobar2000 in terms of speed, low memory usage and the awesome playlist centric GUI. After scouring the web I finally stumbled upon DeaDBeeF which is pretty much identical to the look and feel of foobar2000. To add it to your own repository and install it, simply issue these commands

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:alexey-smirnov/deadbeef
$ sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install deadbeef deadbeef-plugins-dev

Or you can follow one of their guides.
