Probably the best music player I know of is
pogo, written for Ubuntu but as its a python script it plays very nicely
on this Debian box. It can be found at https://launchpad.net/pogo and describes itself as 'Probably the simplest and
fastest audio player for Linux. Pogo plays your music. Nothing else. It is both fast and easy-to-use. The clear
interface uses the screen real-estate very efficiently. Other features include: Fast search on the harddrive and in the
playlist, smart album grouping, cover display, desktop notifications and no music library. Pogo is a fork of Decibel
Audio Player and supports most common audio formats. It is written in Python and uses GTK+ and gstreamer.'
Here is a screenshot of it in action -
Normally I would just do a partial screenshot showing the programme that I was talking about on its own. But, I've done a full screenshot because it shows my top and bottom panels, still on fluxbox, conky, style and background, all of which I intend to talk about in future postings.
