xmms-shn on Ubuntu

To play Shorten (SHN) files on XMMS, just do the following steps:
  1. Open Synaptic Package Manager.
  2. Install xmms-dev.
  3. Download xmms-shn plugin from <>.
  4. Extract the package.
  5. In the current directory of your extracted files, do ./configure, make, and make install.
Yeah, yeah. My instructions are not very precise. It should give you sufficient idea though. Just post a comment if any of the steps are unclear.

Rock on!
