"Use the Synaptic package manager to find the Banshee application. I installed version 1.4.3-3ubuntu2. Simply check the box to install, then apply and Synaptic will do it's thing. You might also want to monodoc-banshee-manual. Podsleuth will be installed automatically along with banshee because it is needed to query information on device configuration and the songs that are loaded.

"Of course, Banshee can't work without songs. Take a look at Figure 1 to see the layout of the user interface. Assuming you have some .mp3 or .ogg files on your laptop, go to Media on the main task bar and select Import Media. A small pop-up window will appear asking for the top most directory with your music. Although, my music is in my /home/music directory, Banshee wouldn't go down to that level so I simply chose the Home directory. The program will then scan through all directories under your home directory and index every music file."
