    dbPoweramp on Linux

    Registered user that doesn't keep a copy of windows hanging around but for dbPoweramp. I see some of the toolset starting to emerge on Mac. Are there plans for a Linux compatible toolset?

    Sadly not, the CD ripping section is 100% different between mac and linux.

    At least in Linux Mint 17, dBpoweramp DOES run under WINE. You have to play with the WINE configuration to set your cdrom path to be mapped to a drive letter, and you have to flip around the drive passthrough options in dBpoweramp, but I can confirm that it works.

    Re: dbPoweramp on Linux

    Hello hogger129, Does DBP edit id tags with a right click on album tracks in linux mint 17? And I am new to linux so if metadata editing will work without windows install I will be happy happy happy. If I have to install windows it will be something to be ashamed of!!! Will you lay out those drive passthrough options for me. Linux newbie is me! Only need it for metadata editing though, otherwise it will be windows all over again. Thanks

    +1 for a port of dBPowerAmp to Linux ! I am now an old time customer, and rely on dBPowerAmp for all my ripping and music conversions ; yet, it is now the only software in my whole music listening setup that does not run on Linux !!

    This gets my vote. I can support a Linux version for a very long time but it seems that Windows has a lifespan of something like 5 years before I have to use a new version that is effectively incompatible with the hardware. Sheesh, you'd expect that the robot CD ripping hardware would wear out long before the motherboard/CPU/RAM takes a dive.

    Me too. Yes Linux would rock. I only use Windows because I have to . . .

    I can confirm that the latest DBpoweramp runs under wine with Linuxmint 19.2 with all updates applied. The encoding is insanely fast.
