Long Live Open Source Software !!

MiniLyrics is a popular plugin that can turn your PC into a karaoke machine. Minilyrics will search your nowplaying song lyrics automatically and play it just like karaoke machine. Unfortunately, MiniLyrics only avalaible in Windows. So you can’t use it with Rhythmbox, Amarok, or another Linux music player.

And now, there is another free software that can replace MiniLyrics function in your linux box. It is OSD Lyrics. OSD Lyrics is a free software that can know what music is played by your favourite Linux music player and then show its lyrics. It’s really like MiniLyrics, even OSD Lyrics search lyrics in MiniLyrics Database.

OSD Lyrics support some music player such as AmaroK, Audacious, Banshee, Rhythmbox, etc. All you have to do is run the OSD Lyrics application, play your music, and OSD Lyrics will search the music’s lyrics for you. Unfortunately, OSD Lyrics can’t use proxy yet. If your internet connection is behind proxy, you can’t use this free software.

Last thing, to install this great free software into your ubuntu lucid, just download the deb package from here, and run this command :

dpkg -i osdlyrics_0.3.20100604-1~lucid1_i386.deb
