Hi Alferd Martinez

Actually, Winamp is for Windows only. If you still want to install Winamp on Ubuntu, you have to do some additional tasks.

1. You'll need to install the Ubuntu restricted extras package.

2. You’ll need to install Wine onto your Ubuntu system. (Visit the link below for more information)

3. Now, you can download the Winamp installer 

4. Mark the installer so that Wine runs it. Use this terminal command [ ]

Hello Alfred there is no version of winamp for Linux

but there are some ways that make you able to use it

First: if you are familiar with wine program , it is an open source program enables you to run normal windows apps over Linux operating system

it doesn’t work with all programs but I think it works great with winamp
here is the website of wine program
http://www.winehq.org/

 And that’s the link for a tested winamp version using wine and the results

Second: you can download similar programs to winamp but made for Linux
of course all of them are free and open source programs
