Because there are a lot of Linux Distribution I have made an overview on how to get XiX Music Player working for your specific Linux Distribution.

Linux (x86)

Make sure the BASS libraries are installed. You can install these libraries easy by running the 'installbass.sh' script included in the archive. This script will need your administrator password to copy the libraries to '/usr/lib'.

sh ./installbass.sh

If you are using a Linux distro based on debian you can, instead of running the previous command, download and install basslibs_2.4.10.deb (32 bit)

Arch User Repository


NOOBSLAB added XiX Music Player to their PPA. Everything will install with just 3 commands in Ubuntu 15.04/14.10/14.04/12.04/Linux Mint 17.1/17/13/ and other Ubuntu derivatives.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps
