I've been using fb2k in windows for the past three years. I'm looking for a linux solution.

What do my fellow fb2k users recommend? I'd rather not use wine, I'm looking for something native.

I was on the same situation recently and I tried a few linux players. My preferences goes to Listen (http://listengnome.free.fr/) which is really great, supports Last.fm, displays covers, etc.

Try it.

You can also take a look at Banshee...

Yeah, Listen does quite well on the UI side of things, too. But then, there's a whole lot of linux players that support album art, last.fm and such. Quod Libet and Amarok can also do that, for example. And if it's just for last.fm, even the very sober Rythmbox supports that.

The really cool stuff in fb2k isn't present in any of the linux players I know. Fb2k is so much more than a fancy music library manager... the replaygain tools, the encoding tools, but most of all the whole plugin infrastructure for dsp's that's keeping high precision...: if anyone knows a linux alternative for that (preferably also one that is as easy to control...), that would be really cool.
