If you want to setup Winamp Presets for your XMMS Music Player here is simple tip.

To get the ‘Default Winamp Presets' for your XMMS wget the following file

wget http://www.xmms.org/misc/winamp_presets.gz

Then issue the following command:

gunzip -c winamp_presets.gz > ~/.xmms/eq.preset

This will overwrite any existing presets you have.

The next time you run XMMS the presets will be available

    I’m not finding any joy!
    “gzip: winamp_presets.gz: not in gzip format”,
    yep ~ I followed every step, and even extracted it
    and placed it in /.xmms myself…but it no see it.
    Oh well…I’ll keep on trying ~

    Refurbished an old HP machine for a kid at church and the pre-sets worked great on xmms running under PCLOS-Gnome-2008-2. To bad the side attachedspeakers are junk.

    Thanks again.

    Best regards,
