    So close! I just built it from source and had a look at it. I've been looking for years to find a proper Foobar2000 replacement for Linux. This one is tantalizingly close, with the design mode and all. But it lacks the one thing that I have yet to find in any other audio player than Foobar2000: the music library tree view with its searching, sorting, and filtering capabilities - especially the ability to search or filter on any tag, including user-defined ones.

    There's a "playlist browser" widget, but it's only for playlists.

    If you build it from source, aside from the usual "which dev libraries do I need" dance to enable features and plugins, you also need to install clang and libdispatch-dev. Deadbeef doesn't support gcc [0].

    When I moved to Linux, I was installed Wine just for foobar2000, but moved to when I found it.
