Exaile is a multi-tabbed music player that can access music as collection and as folder structure. It is actively developed, a new 4.0.0 beta version is out there, but not available in Solus Linux repos.

How to install it?


Download the source files.

Unpack the archive and - opening a terminal in the resulting folder:

sudo su
make install

To get a launcher available:

gedit ~/.local/share/applications/exaile.desktop

and paste this:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Exaile Music Player
Exec=sh -c "/usr/local/bin/exaile"

Make it executable (chmod +x ~/.local/share/applications/exaile.desktop) or trust it when prompted by Nautilus file manager.

Tested this in Solus 3.999, without the problems encountered in Ubuntu. python-dbus was already installed, python-gi-cairo was not needed.
