Now that I’ve updated my Arch Linux 64 desktop with some newer packages, I’ve come across a few surprises. For one, that XMBC works! I was so peeved when I couldn’t get it to work before. XMBC is an awesome media player for Linux (and the original Xbox).
The latest releases of XBMC includes an visualization plugin that I’ve been trying to get my hands on for the longest time, called ProjectM. No other media player that I was comfortable installing had a ProjectM plugin, including VLC and Totem.
Anyway, I now finally have XBMC running (and I can even run it in a window, under Xmonad.. which looks freaking awesome.)
