    I try to use it on my Lubuntu 11.04 laptop (a good match). Sadly it doesn't play mp3 files (on my laptop), I hope I will be able to fix it somethime.

    Just switched from Exaile to Goggles on my laptop :) I will still mainly be using mpd and various frontends though, because I like to have the daemon running on my desktop and control it with anything, but on my laptop I just want something light -> Goggles :)

    Thanks. I guess you have to be a member to see the poll.

    I asked to add gogglesmm to the Poll: Audio Media Player Application of the Year at LinuxQuestions.org. Apparently it got lost in a sea of requests as they take them to be 'front-ends'. The poll closes on 02-07-11 URL= http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/2010-linuxquestions-org-members-choice-awards-93/audio-media-player-application-of-the-year-855920/page4.html

    Great music player :). I've been looking for a good one and amazingly from several available Linux players, none met my needs. Then Goggles came :). Thanks!

    That's nice to hear. Is that the polish edition? Do you have a direct link?

    Love how fast goggles loads. It does everything i used banshee to do, but about 10x quicker and with about 100mb less dependencies! Amazing.

    Hey Sander, love the artwork for gmm. Ever thought about opening up one of those Zazzle shops? Wouldn't mind having a T-Shirt with the logo, or a mousepad.

    Well, to your left there's a column containing your entire collection, sorted by whatever criterium you want(I like to have artist, then album as a subset). Then you drag an album(or individual tracks) into the middle column. The middle column is a playlist you can edit on-the-go, while it's playing the tracks one by one(or random, if you check a box or something). Let me look up a screenshot somewhere... http://tweakers.net/ext/i/1231078031.png this should do it. Just ignore the right column and I guess you'll understand.

    What does the drag-into-middle-panel actually do?

    I kinda liked gmm, but I missed the "drag-into-middle-panel" thing as seen in atunes, amarok and others. Dragging into a playlist was a workaround which worked, but it still didn't make the cut for me. aTunes somehow didn't remember my settings, which kind of sucked. I'll try Quod Libet, Listen Media Player and Decibel next. Hope I have more luck there. It would be a pity to go back to amarok and ruin my kde-free archbox, don't you think?

    I do love this piece of software: fast, lightweight and usable... And I do love the fact that it's based on fox rather than gtk or qt!!!

    Agreed with pickboy87. No other player was able to cope with my 700G music collection on my old hardware. Excellent piece of software :)

    Thanks for this media player. Much simpler than Amarok and incredibly fast. Does everything I need with no bloat. My arch box loves you :)
