Fake Dirty

 

Conky and tint2 config are ripped from others on the Internet, forgot where exactly.

So I may be trying out a few different players right now :X

I use Rythmbox for my 5,000 mp3s and Banshee for my 1,000-2,000 FLAC. :p

If you get the chance, definitely try Deadbeef - it's a great foobar2000 clone. Amarok and Clementine aren't too bad either.

 

Of course, cmus and mpd/ncmpcpp are what the elite of the elite cut their teeth onvery_evil_smiley.gif

 

I found Rhythmbox to be cumbersome/laggy at times, and Banshee drags in too much Mono dependencies for me (not that I have anything against Mono, I just don't like the additional weight it puts on my system). Surprisingly, Banshee is often slower than Rhythmbox for me at times, most evidently when I parse my folders for music to add to my library (only ~20,000 or so songs, so really no excuse for the slowness), or when I try to connect my ipod. They do look pretty though, I'll give them that rolleyes.gif

 

On a side note, don't you just think Unity's improved leaps and bounds in 12.04? It makes it almost usable on some of my rigs.

I agree on banshee being a little heavy on resources, even with an SSD. I also tried Audacious, but the interface just isn't there yet. I only use it for podcasts and other random mp3s.

I have, indeed.  Along with the following picture, the so-called "Pale Blue Dot," they're the reason behind my interest in most everything.

 I actually enjoy it now. It still takes some here's and there's to get used to it for me, but pressing alt+super (showing some of the new commands, along with the old) helped me integrate Unity into daily life. Idk if 11 had it, but it helped me biggrin.gif As far as lagginess goes, it's been smooth as silk.

I tend to prefer making my own shortcuts (a side effect from using tiling managers too much; case in point, all my openbox keybinds are nearly identical to the ones on my dwm rig, which is identical to my Musca rig, which is identical to my xfce rig, and... so on). As far as I know, Unity doesn't let me do that, apart from building it from source (there might be some third-party program for it). Is alt-super the one where it shows the keyboard shortcuts overlay? Or was that just in the beta? I think for the most part, performance has improved, but memory usage has heightened dramatically. It's nearly unusable on a 512Mb Pentium 4, which is kind of sad in a way, as that was my previous minimal benchmark for most high-end distros out of the box. Don't want to sound like I don't like Unity though, for the most part, it's quite good and quite likable. 

 

If Rhythmbox is smooth as silk, Deadbeef would be like satin, and mpd would like a quantum stabilized atom mirror tongue.gif
