Rhythmbox – repeat one song … in multiple languages…

Ubuntu vivid - VMware Player (Non-commercial use only)_078Drive everyone mad by playing your most bonkers song over… and over again!

Standard Rhythmbox lacks this most common media player ability.  Its not for the wont of trying.  We’ve had various attempts in the past.  Upstream an enterprising developer tried to get a patch incorporated … got turned down.  In early versions of Rhythmbox, third-party developers incorporated this via an extra button in the toolbar.  Then upstream stopped third-party developers from fiddling with the main toolbar…

As many of you know, I’ve reworked the main Rhythmbox toolbar … and have decided to bring this functionality back.  Clicking the repeat button allows you to toggle between two repeat modes – ‘repeat all tracks’ (standard repeat mode) and ‘repeat current track’ (as shown).

To get the new release of alternative-toolbar, just update as normal if you are using my rhythmbox-plugins PPA. Otherwise…

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

I’m always looking for contributors to my projects – so if you are a budding python hacker – pop-over to the projects alternative-toolbar and coverart-browser and just fork the code.
