• Xnoise replacement


    With Xnoise no longer in development i’ve searched for a replacement.
    Always liked Rhythmbox but it’s for Gnome and installs way to much dependencies in XFCE.
    After some searching and trying a lot of them including Clementine which is way to bloated i’ve found a really nice one. [https://github.com/matiasdelellis/pragha][0]">[https://github.com/matiasdelellis/pragha][1] & [http://pragha.wikispaces.com][0]">[http://pragha.wikispaces.com][2]
    It’s like Rhythmbox but without all the dependencies and works really great

    sudo pacman -Rsn pragha
    checking dependencies…
    Packages (3): libclastfm-0.5-2 libpeas-1.10.1-1 pragha-1.3.1-1
    Total Removed Size: 1.96 MiB

    That’s all.

  • How are those major problems ?

    Have you personnaly used Clementine or are basing your opinion only on other’s ?

    I use it on a dayli basis and I have not problem at all with those option, they are even perfectly welcome.

  • Yes i’ve tried it and it’s way to much as replacement for Xnoise.
    It fetches information from the internet without asking the user.

    [http://thesimplecomputer.info/choosing-a-linux-music-player][0]">[http://thesimplecomputer.info/choosing-][1] … sic-player
    "I did catch some internet activity from Clementine. A few seconds after launching, the player connects to Magnatune and Google. If you don’t use it, Magnatune can be disabled which will stop that connection. The Google call, however, persisted even when all the extras were disabled".

    Not everybody is happy with that

  • We all have strong opinions on the systems we use and the software we install on them. Personally, I like Clemantine and have no problems with the way it functions. Of course, that does not mean everyone will agree. but why should they? That’s the beauty of OSS

    Cheers!

  • Yes off course but i was looking for a replacement for Xnoise and/or Rhythmbox.
    Found it with Pragha.
    Can’t really call Clementine a replacement for Xnoise.
    Just compare all the functions of the 2 programs.

    I totaly agree with that but Iike when ppl give real not “x is just a so bloated” without argument or just saying “someone else said this”, I prefere a personal experience of a valid point like a bug list that make a soft unusable or a word from the devs like for xnoise not being developed anymore.

    And that’s where I desagree here with Strumpf he is arguing on a matter of taste not of usability. Clementine is perfectly usable but he don’t like and/or he don’t use all it’s functions and if it is in the future part he could just uninstall it and install the soft he like. I did for other soft in th edefailt pool I prefere over those install its verry easy so I will not argue on that.

    Beside that Xnoise is dead it need a replacement my logic to replace it is clementine have all its functionality plus more so it will suite a maximum of users.

    But Smurf give a good point it make internet call and not everyone want that. Some ppl lives in region where internet is limited but will those call will eat many bandwith I’m not shure of that. So is that make it unsuable for the majority ? no.

    Thats why I was questionning him I was “hopping” he will give me a reason to doubt over Clementine.

    All the rest is a matter of taste if we argue on the taste we can argue on the default pool of every distro for every software. Why empathy over pidgin, why xfburn over k3b etc etc And last but not least : why antergos why not stick to arch ? I think we havn’t the time for that.


    That’s the beauty of OSS

    We can argue ont that but it is also the worst thing of OSS it is creating more and more small groups of ppl that are not ok within the other and never change their mind because they can do as they want at th moment their is a lack of consistency. For me it is a problem.

    But it is not the place to argue on that.

  • The “bloated” part is from my own experience. And not just a few hours.
    I clearly said that i was looking for a replacement for Xnoise or Rhythmbox.
    Clementine is clearly not, just look at all the functions it has and compare that with Xnoise or Rhythmbox.
    A bit to much for just playing some mp3’s.

  • I rather like exaile if I want to stick to GTK options

    That one i haven’t tried yet.
    Must give it a go then

    Edit: It does install a lot dependencies.
    perl-locale-gettext-1.05-11 python-dbus-common-1.2.0-3
    gstreamer0.10-python-0.10.22-2 help2man-1.44.1-1 mutagen-1.24-1
    python2-dbus-1.2.0-3
    Total of 10.12 mb

    But is a nice one.
    It’s got an “date added” option which Pragha is missing.
    Couldn’t find an option to add my hole music collection to the playlist at once.
    Had to do it manually 1 by 1. 158 times

  • Audacious is great! love it.

    I’ve tried it but it was buggy. The jump bar didn’t work when i clicked on something and there was text missing on some columns.
    Like bitrate, genre etc…

  • Hi,

    My proposal (this are just my preferences, not Antergos team ones):

    Openbox - Audacious
    XFCE - gmusicbrowser
    Gnome - gnome-music and Rythmbox (Exaile has been buggy for me)
    Kde - Clementine

    Any thougths?

    Cheers!

    For me Exaile worked perfectly and Audacious was buggy ???
    Guess it’s because i use XFCE.
    I’ve tried GMusicBrowser and it’s a nice one but still a bit to big for me with all the options.
    Had to google some options.
    But it has everyting you can imagine and worked perfectly.
    Liked the option to make it look like other music players.
    Would be a nice one for KDE.

    Openbox - ??? never used Openbox
    XFCE - Pragha
    Gnome - Rhythmbox
    Kde - GMusicBrowser

  • Keep it simple Clementine for all.

    Try Gmusicbrowser.
    It’s a nice one, with loads of options.

  • No I’ll not try it because it have no build for windows or mac. interoperability is a very important thing no matter what OS you use you must found your soft on it.

  • Gnome Music. Best player… just drop your files into your music folder under home. If there are double posts, hit F5 like in a browser.
