Just a piece of Clementine…

Clementine player: Spring may allow it grow

After having my blod added to Planet Archlinux (so many thanks for adding my blog ), I really wanted to publish a post about one of my favorite software* on Linux.

Recently I learned about a new, lightweight, music player/manager, based on Amarok 1.4, but with the kdelib3 stripped off.

And so Clementine** was born.
Clementine is a music player and manager, just like Amarok 1.4, but really light – it just has Qt and gstreamer as dependencies, and the memory footprint and responsiveness of the program are what drew my attention.

Clementine is developed by David Sansome and John Maguire, based on the work done on Amarok 1.4.

Except for lightweight, it’s also multiplatform – it can also be ran on Windows, MacOSX and, of course, Linux.

If you want to experiment with Clementine, Archers, you have two choices:

1) Visit AUR and build&install clementine-svn

or/and

2) Use clementine-svn found on archlinux-greece repository project.

Of course, if you find any bug, you should report it on their bugtracker.

I really recommend it.
