I've been using fb2k in windows for the past three years. I'm looking for a linux solution.

What do my fellow fb2k users recommend? I'd rather not use wine, I'm looking for something native.

I was using mostly XMMS for a while because I found a plugin that would read replaygain values from the APEV2 tag in my MP3 files. Now, I found MPD (with GMPC as the frontend) and it's a really easy way to listen to music. It's great for networking (computer with wireless card behind my home stereo can be controlled from main desktop in different room) but I don't think it supports replaygain for MP3s yet.

I still use foobar2000 with Wine for tagging/organizing and replay gain-ing my collection. If only the player didn't stutter when playing back audio and working on the computer, I would use it all the time.

Now, I found MPD but I don't think it supports replaygain for MP3s yet.

Latest release candidates of MPD support replaygain in mp3 but only in ID3v2 tags (it's now recommended way of tagging mp3, also in foobar2000 0.9.x). Also MPD has true gapless playback and for lame encoded mp3. Get latest version sources from http://musicpd.org and compile it youself to get most quality player for mp3/ogg/etc in linux. See also this topic about ALSA resampling issues.

Quodlibet is the best I've seen so far, but for me at least, it's rather slow with a 15000 song database, much slower than is reasonable. The one thing I miss most from foobar is its tagging abilities: quodlibet itself, for some reason, can't read the frame of id3v2 that foobar uses to store non-standard tags (I, for example, have stored such tags as 'date_performed' in addition to date, or 'place', etc.); oddly, its tagging backend, mutagen, can... I suppose I'll stick with mpd and ql for now, and hope wine can someday improve foobar's skipping.
