Linux-friendly mp3 player

My Sansa Fuze+ died a few weeks ago (maybe a week after putting Rockbox on it...) and it doesn't look like I'll be able to fix it. So I'm starting to look for a new mp3 player. I'm doing my own research, but I also wanted to ask for any recommendations here! I only have a few requirements:
  • Must be easy to manage on Linux (duh)

  • Must have at least 8 gigs, either by itself or with a mini/micro SD card

  • Must do playlists well, as that's mainly how I listen to music (I don't care if I add music or albums to a playlist on the computer or the player itself, as long as it's fairly easy to do)

  • No Apple players


A lower price is a plus, too. I don't care about playing videos, recording, listening to radio, etc. Touch controls are nice but not required. My music collection is just about entirely in mp3 format.

    I first made this laptop dual boot to Ubuntu about a year or two ago, I forget how long ago. But the first time I did it, I didn't give it enough…

    I've been using Ubuntu for a few months, but still I'm essentially new. I'm not a programmer at all, just someone who got tired of Windows constantly…
