How To Install Tomahawk Music Player in Ubuntu 14.04

Tomahawk project has been discontinued and should not be used anymore. Try another player like Sayonara.

Tomahawk is perhaps the most beautiful music player for Linux in terms of user interface. It’s also one of the most feature rich music application. It supports the integration of a number of streaming music player such as Spotify, Grooveshark, Google Play Music, iTunes etc.

It is in fact a social music player where you can even send tracks to your friend as suggestion and they can play it with their preferred music service. If you want to try your hands, let’s see how can you install Tomahawk in Ubuntu 14.04 and Linux Mint 17.

Install Tomahawk in Ubuntu

Tomhawak has its official PPA that you can use to install it in Ubuntu and other Ubuntu based Linux distributions. Open a terminal and use the following commands in it:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomahawk/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tomahawk

Once installed, you can run it from Unity Dash. Configuring Tomahawk is no big deal. I leave it for you to explore it. Here is a screenshot of how does it look in Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity:
