I totally agree. Installing the GTK1 libraries in Puppy4 just to use XMMS is ugly.

I'm amazed (I suppose I shouldn't be, you must be the world authority on gtkdialog by now).
The first time I opened the dialog to index my music the index window kept closing and then reopening.
Looks like you've made a feature of the broken window manager close request. The player can run in the background and when you restart the gui it attaches to the running player automatically, nice. It is a good demonstration of separation of the GUI from the processes. I think I will copy this in psip if I can get past the problems with pjsua.
video player next , will it do fullscreen

as mentioned before, now first tests. system homebrew based on dingo on notebook.
by starting from console i get:
cat: /root/.pmusic/tmp/pmusic-PLAYLIST1234: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `/root/.pmusic/tmp/pmusic-playlist1': No such file or directory
/usr/local/pmusic/func: line 794: kill: (26441) - No such process
cat: /root/.pmusic/tmp/pmusic-playlist: No such file or directory
cat: /root/.pmusic/tmp/pmusic-progressbar_status: No such file or directory
last one goes into a neverending loop. but pmusic starts.
i than wanted to add a small library fo testing. i think the ways are:
1. File > Update Index
2. Edit > Add Music to Playlist > Update Index
if i do one of those, the new window is opening in endless number until i kill xwin.
so unluckily i could not test further.
but nice and clean gui.
with how much songs did you test it (with/without reading tags)?

Takk skal du ha Zigbert!
this is a really great start. I like the features, and mostly it seemed to work ok for me.
BUG: when in the add songs dialog, X windows (JWM) froze both times. I could still ctrl+alt+backspace to drop into the command line and restart x.
I also thought it might be interesting to compare some performance stats. My machine is a Fujitsu Lifebook B2131, 400 MHz, 192 MB ram.
Pmusic: ffmpeg, aplay and gtk3dialog take 21% ram & 17% cpu
Gxine: takes 83% mem & 30% cpu (with visualization OFF!!)
So, it looks like Pmusic will be a real winner on my dated hardware, as soon as some bugs have been worked out..
Just out of curiosity I thought I should try with DSL too..
xmms: 0-1% cpu, 3.4% mem
He he, I already knew at some level that DSL is what I boot when I need every last ounce of cpu power for processing rather than eye candy

Just to report a bug,
I installed Pmusic and called it from the multimedia menu entry, started OK
I took File, open song/playlist.
I chose the song I wanted and pressed the add button
At this point the system locked up. Mouse still moved but I could not click anything. I did a ctrl/alt/backspace to exit X and restart X
On reopening Pmusic, the song I had chosen was in the playlist. Now doing the same operation it works!

Zigbert, I've been playing with Pmusic and I'm liking it.
A suggestion, could you get it to open complete directories?
Unlike you, I do store my music by Artist/Album/song directories and it is great to be able to select the album and all songs are added to the playlist and start playing. Xine-UI has this feature but Gxine doesn't.

Thanks for the link to lamip, but I will try first to see if we can succeed with ffmpeg | aplay, since these already are in puppy.
Index time: Without tags my 18000 songs are indexed in seconds, with tags, I don't know - many hours I guess.
Takk for cpu-test.
Good to know that Pmusic aren't too hungry for resources.
Does it freeze every time? I can't reproduce it, so please test more and give as much details as possible. Your wish about indexing directories should be possible, but not with the current Pmusic-environment. I put it on the wish-list, but remember, that you can still use the 'open' dialog and add songs to playlist. Maybe the solution is to enhance this dialog rather than the add-dialog. Another solution could be to make a builtin browser (like the one in Pburn) in the add-dialog.
I guess the pause could be avoided with some kind of buffer, or to give ffmpeg higher priority.

Looks like a start to a beautiful friendship Excellent starting point and if I know you, Which personally I don't lol But what I've seen of your track record you'll turn this into a default player for puppy
I also listen to a lot of Mp3's, What Features I like the most are
well with xmms I always use stream tuner, I really like listening to online radio. News, Music, from back home in Canada, So it would be great if future models might be able to play streaming music with a Favorite station list.
Also simple stuff like eq range from 15hz-40khz or ,maybe just a treble, midrange, and low control? Balance and volume equalizer. jeese while I'm at it why not included a online video stream player also to play asx files I guess maybe by version 1.5 or something
LOL sorry I couldn't resist, I'm very happy to see this project happen.
p.s how's that new front end for prozilla coming along LOL I know its on a list, just seen a spot open. LOL
