How to listen to audio CDs on Suse7 using the command line?

In SuSE 7 there is no cdplayer, at least no program under that name. Also no cdp, cdplay or similar. So I have to play CDs by always typing startx which takes too long. Anyone knows if there's a 'secret' program i don't know about?

Also, when I want to start the CD, I have to be root (su). How can I set it to start music CDs as any user? I noticed that when I start a music CD and it starts playing, the CD drive (/cdrom) isn't actually mounted. At least when i type umount /cdrom I get the message that it isn't mounted. Anyone care to explain?

Audio CD's don't mount, there is no filesystem on them (AFAIK), you probably would need to change permissions on /dev/cdrom or the actual device /dev/cdrom points to. To find out:
ls -l /dev/cdrom (LS -L lowercase)
and it should tell you what device it's pointing to. Change permissions there as well.
