Trying to install xmms

I am new to ubuntu (and linux in general), as if its not obvious. I am trying to install xmms on ubuntu 8.10 but I keep getting an error.

What I type in the Terminal:

sudo apt-get install xmms

My error:

E: Couldn't find package xmms

I'm not sure where to put the package so that it can be found to be installed.

Sorry for the newb question, but I guess I have to start somewhere.

Thanks!

XMMS is old. Use Audacity.

I think you mean Audacious, Audacity is the audio editor. I prefer Banshee for music and VLC for video. XMMS is available, you need to add the Universe repos (under software sources) then "sudo apt-get install xmms2".

Great! Thanks a lot! I didn't even know to look for software sources (noob :blink: ) haha
