Equalizer for Rhythmbox

Thanks to Ubuntuforums I came to know of a really cool plugin which enables a 10 band equalizer in Rhyhtmbox.

To add this equalizer, simply copy paste the following code in the terminal (Accessories > Terminal):

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins && wget -O- | tar xvjf - -C ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins

To activate this plugin, launch Rhythmbox, go to Edit > Plugins and the check Equalizer. The equalizer's 10 band setting is available from the Plugins menu.

Try it out. Its a really cool feature.
