Most suitable audio player for Bodhi (Audacious)


Hello.
How about to place "Audacious" as the preferred music player for Bodhi Linux in the AppCenter instead "Clementine"?
Reason is because "Clementine" is QT-based but "Audacious" is GTK-based. Therefore "Audacious" is more suitable for the Bodhi.

Why not Rhythmbox? It's great IMO and I may be wrong but doesn't Rhythmbox use GTK.

Or Rhytmbox. The goal of my proposal is to recommend an audio player with less as possible external dependencies for Bodhi Linux that is Moksha - GTK based.

Hello there

As far as the resources is concerned, there are some EFL solution. Unfortunately I did not check the state of those apps.

Ups... I thought Bodhi and Moksha both are GTK-based. Now I see Enlightenment hierarchy and understand my mistake. I'm used to seeing only QT and GTK. EFL is a discovery for me.

Anyway Rhythmbox and Audacious both are lighter than Clementine.

Some info for more understanding:

Ubuntu base + Moksha desktop = Bodhi Linux
Moksha is a desktop app based on Enlightenment foundation library (EFL). We have some EFL based apps. For example one nice app (ephoto) is EFL based application for image view.

Appcenter is not very fresh. We are too tiny crew to take care of every corner of our distribution. Feel free to install any piece of music app you like. Of course if your HW resources are limited, take the lighter one. We are very liberal distribution. Install what you want.

Thank you. I agree that quality of the operating system distribution is more important than its environment.

If the tagline for empc on the page the waiter linked earlier is accurate, seems fairly clear what your choice should be
