New guise for an old & reliable CD player all Puppyists have
Subject description: Namely: cdda-player!
There's a new kid on the block!
He's called cdda-player and he plays CDs better than anyone!
He's been in your Puppy for ages, except today musher0 bought him new rags!
All jokes aside, this is a really good CD player that has gone unnoticed for awhile.
I thought the attached "skin" might bring to the forefront a little more.
cdda-player has key control, not mouse control. But frankly, how difficult can it be
l -- to see the song listing
k -- to see the keyboard commands
a number from 1 to 10 to play corresponding song in the listing. If there are more
than 10 songs on your CD, continue typing on the keyboard row above: F1 will
serve as # 11, all the way to F12 (which starts track # 22).
Before you launch cdda-player.desktop,
* you must have your CD/DVD config down pat. Check that /dev/sr0 is linked to
__/dev/cdrom. In the menu, this config tool is listed as the "CD/DVD Wizard";
from terminal, type : cdburner-wizard.
* you must have inserted your CD in the drive...
I know this last point sounds deranged, but it's a serious linux thing, If there is no
CD in your CD drive, linux thinks there is no CD drive. It's very logical, when to
stop to think about it!
||This *.pet archive contains a *.desktop file which calls a bash script in
/root/my-documents/bin. A few decorative elements are added, such as a music CD
icon, and the nice little Proc2 font, which contributes to widening the terminal a bit.
|| Actually, it's the old but very reliable cdda-player in transparent lingerie...Sexy, eh? :)
