Download Songbird 1.8.0 For Linux
By on September 6th, 2010

Songbird 1.8.0 has been released under the codename “Orbital” for Mac OS X and Windows. The new release has a number of improvements in terms of performance and some new features, like support for USB storage device class. The number of supported devices have also been increased.

Songbird is no longer officially supported in Linux. But, through community effort, Songbird 1.8.0 is also available for Linux; without any support, of course.

To use Songbird 1.8.0, open the terminal and download the version.

For 32-bit:

wget http://download.songbirdnest.com/installer/linux/i686/Songbird_1.8.0-1800_linux-i686.tar.gz

For 64-bit:

wget http://download.songbirdnest.com/installer/linux/x86_64/Songbird_1.8.0-1800_linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Then, extract the tarball.

For 32-bit:

tar -xzf Songbird_1.8.0-1800_linux-i686.tar.gz

For 64-bit:

tar -xzf Songbird_1.8.0-1800_linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Make the file executable.

cd Songbird
chmod u+x singbird

Then, open your file browser, go inside the Songbird folder and double-click on a file named “songbird” to launch Songbird.

Or, you can just do this from the command line:

./songbird

    Thank you so much for this article. I love this program so much that being able to have it again in Linux is a real treat. It installed perfectly :)
