No, that was listed as one solution, but not the only one. OP also mentioned
preloading the next file (something sorta like what Rhythmbox does, IIRC).

I see that this bug is being worked on, but in the meantime you can use

Rhythmbox is supported on default Ubuntu and has had gapless for a little
while (maybe a year). It's probably the best choice for this.

Also, gstreamer recently got a playbin2 element that will allow for gapless
audio playback. It's not quite there yet, but it should be the final
solution to this for all gstreamer-using players.
