How To Install Install Quod Libet 3.7.1 on Ubuntu 16.10

   Quod Libet is a GTK+-based audio player written in Python, using the Mutagen tagging library. It’s designed around the idea that you know how to organize your music better than we do. It lets you make playlists based on regular expressions (don’t worry, regular searches work too). It lets you display and edit any tags you want in the file, for all the file formats it supports.

    The latest version available is QuodLibet 3.7.1, which has been recently released, bringing a huge list of changes:
  •     tests: Use dbus-daemon instead of dbus-launch for creating a session bus.
  •     Fix 100% CPU when no song column is expanded.
  •     Fix SoundCloud login with Ubuntu 14.04
  •     MP4: Fix crash when saving certain bpm tags
  •     Windows: Make lastfmsync plugin work
Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via some third party packages, so installing the software on Ubuntu is easy. Just add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the Quod Libet package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lazka/ppa

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install quodlibet

  Optinal, to remove QuodLibet, do:
