If you (like me) are sick of the slick audio players making something simple become complicated (note Amorak and it ilk) then I suggest you have a look at Aqualung. Its still beta but has huge promise because of what it can run.
To install it you need to add deb
Code: Select all
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian lenny main
The other trick is to install Jack Control. Aqualung is the FIRST package and only package I have used that has worked with Jack. I still can't get Rosegarden to run with it!
One of the things I love about this package is its simplicity. I don't find the glossy media players intuitive to use, and my eyesight and hand coordination is not good enough to handle XMMS (those confounded tiny controls..why?)
Aqualung needed to be setup the way I like it with some nice skins; I chose "dark". I also adjusted the default font size from Sans 11 to Sans 9. Perfect.
I Just thought I would share my new found toy.
