Although Linux has several different music players available, they just don't cut the mustard. I quickly started yearning after the versatility and general appeal of MB. Now it's time to bring some of that MusicBee goodness over to Linux
How I got MusicBee 3.0 to work on Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" (MATE):
(I don't see why it wouldn't work on other distros as well)
Download the portable windows version of Musicbee.
Start POL, navigate to Tools -> Manage wine version
Under tab x86, install version 1.9.17
Click Install, and in the lower left corner, click "Install non-listed program"
Choose to install to a new virtual drive. Name it and then select all three options.
Select Wine version 1.9.17, then 32-bit and install if it needs something.
Wine configuration screen should pop up, select Windows 10 as the Windows version, then Apply & OK.
Select the following libraries;
If any of the libraries give an error, just skip it --you can add it after installing.
Choose the Musicbee portable installer.
Install it to the virtual C:/ drive.
If any of the libraries refused to download or install, right click on MusicBee, Wine configuration
Go to Libraries tab, and from the drop down menu, select the missing library and add it to the list.
Everything so far seems to work, only tool tips are a bit wonky.
For a less cluttered look, deselect "Skin window borders".
That's it, enjoy MusicBee on Linux
