If you want to compile it, it's actually pretty simple. First, download
the .tar.gz file. Extract it to a folder somewhere (the default location
that the archive manager extracts to is /tmp. You may want to change
this). Go to Applications --> Accessories --> Terminal. Type:
cd /tmp/rhythmbox-0.9.3 (or wherever you put it)
./configure (if it complains about dependency problems, you might need
to install other packages)
sudo make install
And that should be it.
