comandline programs?


Personaly, I think X-apps look way ugly in fluxbox, and terminal, or commandline, programs blend in much better. Plus, I prefer using a commandline program (Like bitchx) as opposed to usinga gui program (like xchat).

My question is:

Are there any commandline MP3 player that supports playlists ETC.

And is there a commandline chat program that suppots msn/aim/yahoo?

When I run 'emacs' in a terminal, the gui version pops up, how can I make the terminal version run??

Thanks

You can start emacs in non gui mode, by opening a file as follows
Code:
$emacs -nw filename

Thanks for the replies... you have answered all of my questions

Except for one, is there is a chat program like gaim that is commandline?

OR

Is there a way to change the color of mozzila/gaim (I'm using fluxbox, and fluxbox's theme does not affect these programs.

Hi,

there is also mp3blaster which supports playlist, and which i use a lot when i am not using X.

The fluxbox themes, if they aren't GTK based have no impacts on mozilla/gaim look and feel. If they are GTK, they might change the windows look and controls look, but not the colors of the entire program.

For command line clients like gaim, i don't think so? Maybe you can find one program by protocol, but not a full featured console client supporting msn, yahoo , etc.
