Multimedia music Player
When I migrated from win 4 years ago the thing I missed the most was foobar2000. Unfortunately the only way to use foobar under linux is via wine (heard that recent versions did miracles with it, perfect sound quality etc.)
I've settled with mpd + sonata. It's not that much of a feature rich but it gives you basic music player (really lightweight) easily managed playlists and lyrics + cover art fetcher, even a tag edtior.
actually, i used foobar2000 in wine for a while, but these days i'd rather use native linux applications.
Whoops didn't see the qt requirement.
You could chose another mpd frontend and also the mocp shortcut is easy to create. Regardless of the DE you're using just create new shortcut and check the "run in terminal" checkbox.
awesome, just what i wanted to know.
i thought about mpd. i had some trouble getting it to work before, but i may take another look.
i forgot to mention that i had already tried minirok, but it wasn't quite what i wanted.
