Alternative-Toolbar v0.8.1 released – Some screen-shots showing what I’ve been hacking for the last couple of weeks.
The side-bar in Rhythmbox has been reworked to be more logical – local sources, online and playlists. If you are still in love with the old rhythmbox sidebar – just reinstate that via the plugin-preferences.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fossfreedom/rhythmbox-plugins
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-plugins-alternative-toolbar
