Linux tip: How to set Winamp Presets in XMMS Music Player ?

By Debjit on July 29th, 2009 

xmms presetsXMMS is a full fledged Winamp like MP3 player for Linux. Althought it lacks many functionalities  that are available in Winamp, but XMMS looks very similar to Winamp nonetheless. Since XMMS does not come with built in presets, we thought we would use the default WINAMP presets in XMMS. In this article we will tell you how to go about setting up Winamp presets in XMMS Music Player.

If you have XMMS already installed then you must have a directory .xmms inside your home directory. In order to get Winamp Presets in XMMS Player you have to place a file that contains all the presets settings. Follow these steps:

1. Navigate to your ~/.xmms directory (the .xmms directory inside your home folder)

2. Download this file: eq.preset and copy it to the .xmms directory. This file contains all the winamp preset settings you should not rename this file in the .xmms directory. This means you should have the file eq.preset right in your .xmms directory.

3. You can now load the presets in XMMS Music Player by going to: equalizer > Click Preset > Load > Presets
