x360mediaserve - Stream Music To Your 360 In Linux

Written by Matt on April 7, 2008 – 7:27 pm -

Remember that time you threw your controller at your Xbox 360 when you tried streaming music to your Xbox, only to learn once again that Microsoft hates Linux? Now, with x360mediaserve, you can easily stream thousands of songs from your Linux box straight to your 360! I’ve simplified installing and setting up x360mediaserve into three easy steps! Note that for the server to work, you need java, lame,faad,flac and sox already installed.


I’ve written a script to download the tar.gz, extract it, and then delete the tar.gz. I’ve also provided you with a simple command that will download, run, and then delete the script itself. To install, all you have to do is paste this into a terminal:

wget && bash && rm


Using the following command, you can start the server by pasting it into a terminal, adding it to your menu, or even adding it to your services (so it starts everytime you boot).

cd Programs/x360mediaserve-0.0.2/ && ./start


Don’t worry, this part is as easy as the rest of this tutorial. After the media server is running, click on the link below:

Using this simple configuration tool, you’ll need to type in the exact path to your music directory. Friendly name is the name that’ll show up on your Xbox when you go to browse your music. Everything else you don’t need to mess with, but hey, it’s your computer.

Liberation Fonts Installation Script

Written by Matt on December 16, 2007 – 5:35 pm -

After you’ve installed a Linux distro of your choice, more than likely to free yourself from the limits of Microsoft, what better way to further the experience than by using “open-source” fonts? Not only do the Liberation fonts look great, but they are also easy to install if your distro didn’t include them. I’ve written a script to do it all for you, all you have to do is download the script and get to bashing! After installing, you can simply select the fonts for use in any application you like, even system wide!
