The Gtk1 XMMS has been ported to Gtk2 under the name beep-media-player.
Some time ago the beep-media-player people started a new project (BMPx),
but the classic BMP was forked to become the Audacious project, which is
essentially the latest version of XMMS now.  (XMMS en "classic" BMP
aren't supported by their upstreams anymore, but Audacious is.)

See: <http://audacious.nenolod.net/Main_Page>
(Audacious is available in Ubuntu 7.04 "Feisty".)
