Listen 2.0

It has been a long time in the making but Listen 2.0 (written in python) is finally here! The people at Mono are doing a very good job however I just couldn’t get it to work for me, so I rewrote it in python. You may have been expecting a listen 1.1 or 1.04 etc. But I want to get as far away as possible from the first release of Listen. I have uploaded the update to the fabulous guys at the Ubuntu software center. You can download the app now!

How Do I Use It?
The UI is very easy to understand, what you do is you select a device from the device dropdown and check the listen check box, when you close the application all devices will stop playing through the speakers
 

Sorry for the problems with 1.0! But to try and make up for it, here is a sneak peek at the new UI!

Much nicer than the old UI!

Thanks for all your support!

    I have a Crosley record player that you can record to MP3 via the USB cable. I’ve found that I can use your Listen 2.0 to just listen to my records through my computer (not having to record them). A couple of months ago bought a Raspberry Pi and thought it would be great to use “behind the scenes” to play by records on the livingroom stereo, but I am unable to figure out how to install it without the Ubuntu Software Center. Is there a way to download the source or apt-get / wget this software? It would make it really handy to be able to use something like this on my Pi. Thank you.

      Hello Eddy. I made the application using a tool called Quickly however it doesen’t sign the debian packages, I sent it off to the software centre and they must have fixed the packaging. I would be happy to send you a link to the unsigned package though.

        Yeah, that’d be great. Like I mentioned earlier it’ll be on my Pi, so if something goes crazy it’s not like it’s my main computer. Sorry, it took me a couple of days to reply.

          That’s okay Eddy. Here is a link to the debain package http://download.pcthingz.com/dload.php?file=listen_2.0_all.deb and here is the md5sum dd56b3eb7739bd9edf7ec4ef350db130. Sorry about the look of the page, I’m in the process of changing the theme. (I know aesthetics is probably not something you worry about when downloading a package but the theme is a little embarrassing). I haven’t tested it on anything other than Ubuntu so let me know how you get on, and I’ll try to help where I can.
