C-a S (that's an uppercase s). Check out the manpage. There isn't much that screen can't do.

Yeah, I know, that splits it horizontily (that is SO spelled wrong). I was looking for a way to split it vertically.

naim is awesome except you can't check away messages. For that I use pork, but I'm still much more at home in naim and keep going back to it. Try them both :)

Centericq covers all my wants. It's supports yahoo, aim, icq, msn, jabber, and a few others.

vim (Perhaps my favourite app full stop!)
irssi
screen
mutt (see my avatar, I love mutt)
GNU Typist ( I swear I'm going to learn to touch type one day!)
slrn (haven't used this in a while but if I need a newsreader then this is it)
emerge (everybodies favourite :D)
aptitude (:oops:)

I used to be a fan of mc a year or so ago but once I got the hang of all the file manipulation commands like chmod and chown etc I ditched it as it is too slow compared to typing the commands.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I used knonqueror until I learned all the commands and then I found mc and it didnt' seem that useful...

Didn't see this one mentioned, or at least I don't think I did, and just found out about its but "pinfo" is a very nice way to read man pages.

Well, mpg123 gets one vote because it's the only thing that can make the weird old soundcard on my 7 year old laptop make music.
Also, I've just found xmmsctrl. It's niffty because now I can use my bedside laptop to control music on my main box with 5.1 speakers that resides on the other side of the room. No more getting out of bed for music :) Just ssh in and xmms up from the console.


Thats not a bad idea ... I just run gnump3d on my router and listen to everything on my laptop. Plus I can listen to my music at work if I want to as well.

I can't believe noone has mentioned noxmms yet -- so far, its the only media app I can find so far that plays music streams. Although I guess mplayer probably does too..

Also, yafc is the bomb! Tab-completion in sftp/ftp + bookmarks! You can't beat it!

There are plenty of console only music players - cplay, moosic, madplay, orpheus, mpg321. And stuff like cdplay. cdcd for CDs

I don't think anyone mentioned anything for cd ripping, but there's cdparanoia and cdda2wav (and the horrible transcode for dvd ripping)

And of course, there's nethack for all your gaming needs!

I think everything else has been covered

I know, but I can't find one that plays audio streams. noxmms does, but its pretty lacking on the options.

abcde is absolutely the best way to rip a CD. Set up a config file, then just leave it.

cvs and rsync are two very flexible systems that do a lot more than people first think. CVS and rsync can both be used locally, for example.

When I run noxmms recurse.m3u, it plays it fine. Of course, as an added bonus, the only way to control the stream is to play it or kill it. ;) Running mp3blaster recurse.m3u it just sits there and stares at me ("failed to open file for reading"). mplayer just dies.

There's gotta be *something* that can play playlists over the internet, I just can't find it.

Well, there is fbxine for the framebuffer (part of xine-ui), but that didn't work. Good idea though, I never would have thought to try that one.

I'm trying to kill off the console, I don't really like it and I think it's nice challenge to replace the tasks I do in CLI with GUI apps.

anyways chmod and chown are two nice little apps I use often.

I thought mp3blaster could only play .mp3. Did you try running mplayer -playlist recurse.m3u?

cplay/orpheus/moosic with vorbis-tools installed should work just fine.

mp3blaster plays oggs too (with +oggvorbis flag), and yah I tried passing the playlist option.

I've tried those other 3, and I can't figure them out ...

Interesting, I just tried mp3blaster and got the same error as you, but mplayer (dev-CVS-040703-22:02-3.3.3) works.

sdibb wrote:

I also could'nt figure out orpheus and moosic, but for cplay, the man page should be enough (I just do cplay -nR <playlist> and everything works :wink:).
Oh, and you might also want to try ogg123 (vorbis-tools) alone too.

[edit: I just noticed "-ogg streaming (have oggplayer class use soundinputstream)" at mp3blaster todo list]
