I may be the lone ranger here, but I sorely miss Guayadeque Music Player being in the official repositories.

I don't think it was ever in the repos. You can't miss something you never had! :mrgreen:

Good player though. I use DeadBeef mainly which is also not in the repos. It does a great job of processing and tagging ReplayGain for those who "miss" mp3gain.

I stand corrected.
Linux is definitely not short of alternative music players. :wink:

I wonder how many Qt 4 apps we'll lose when that's removed from Debian.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Clipgrab 3.8.6, Hedgewars 1.0.0, PulseEffects 4.6.8, Telegram-desktop 1.8.15, Pale Moon 28.7.2, KeepassXC 2.5.1

Banshee - Mainly use it to search for songs made between year and year.
Gnash - Use the stand alone player for old flash animations.
Tomboy - For shareability between different platforms.

Might be better suited and supported software these days but it's the things I started to use around Jessie.

@ sunrat - With so many players available, I can understand your being unsure as to if Guayadeque was ever in the repos. Jessie was the last Debian version to include it. I wish you had been able to try it out since I am sure you would have liked it.
@ kedeha - Thanks for researching Guayadeque. Hopefully you remember it and possibly used it.

It's quite good, I have it in AVLinux probably downloaded from the xenial PPA and installed locally (don't do this at home ;) ).
I just looked and my everyday system has Audacious, DeadBeef, gmusicbrowser, Juk, Mixxx, Potamus, QMMP, and Strawberry as well as MPV and VLC plus a couple more. They all have their own pros and cons. I really like Cantata as well which is installed in yet another system.

Ok, but if it works still without any issues?
On some systems I stil use software > 20 years old, is still l working. I have to find an alternative as some day it will stop.

I've just read also:

sysinfo went out with Buster. Not necessary for those accustomed to finding out stuff about their hardware using commands in the terminal but of interest, perhaps, to curious non-tech users.
sysinfo is a graphical tool that is able to display some hardware and software information about the computer it is run on.
