Editor’s note: This is the first Linux article on Guiding Tech. It talks about Rhythmbox, a music player for Linux distros like Ubuntu and how you can share music from it on Twitter. We plan to have more Linux/Ubuntu posts in the future.
Rhythmbox on Ubuntu, by default, doesn’t let you post what’s playing on your computer to social networks. The Microblogger Plugin for Rhythmbox adds just that feature – once you install it, you can immediately publish what’s playing on Rhythmbox to Twitter or Identica.
This tutorial will show you how you can install the plugin for Rhythmbox on Ubuntu. Using the terminal for the purpose would take less time, but it could be intimidating for some of us – so we’ll do it the GUI way.
First, open your home folder by going to Places > Home
Hit Ctrl+L for the location bar to appear.
Type ~/.gnome2 or /home/username/.gnome2 where username should be your actual Ubuntu username. Hit Enter.
