Introduction

Audacious is a lightweight, GTK-based, open source audio player and descendant of XMMS. Using plugins, the player supports many different formats and services.

In contrast to most other music players, Audacious does not support the concept of a music library, but is instead centered around playlists (like the classic Winamp). Additionally, Winamp Classic Skins are supported. Since Audacious supports GTK-2, GTK-3 (and Qt as of version 3.6), it is usable for different desktop environments or window manager setups.

Installing

Emerge audacious:

# emerge -a media-sound/audacious

This will pull in the ebuild "media-plugins/audacious-plugins", which contains the necessary plugins to play different kinds of media files.

Running

Run with:

$ audacious

While Audacious is running and playing music, you may use different parameters to toggle play/pause, skip forward/backward, etc:

$ # Skip forward:
$ audacious -f
$ # Toggle play/pause:
$ audacious -t

BInd this commands to your favourite shortcuts to control audacious using your keyboard. Alternatively, activate the "Global Hotkeys" plugin using the settings menu.

Troubleshooting

Audacious does not play my favourite media format.
Check the use flags you set on media-plugins/audacious-plugins.
