It's obvious that each person has their own version of a Linux installation.

I use this trick to install "my" custom install. I don't have to waste time installing packages one by one. I can do a full install to my liking as fast as my internet connection lets me.

I create a file named "pkglist.txt" with all of my favorites listed one per line.

Set-up my sources.list file.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install $(< pkglist.txt)

Sit back and let the magic of apt-get do all the work.

The file may have to altered over time as you add new programs or packages are no longer available. Apt-get will chack for any errors in the list before it starts so once it starts it's pretty painless. Saves a lot of time!

I use Xfce, so some of my programs are simply defaults to that, although I've removed a lot too.

Iceweasel/Opera/Qupzilla/Chromium ( I hardly use Chromium)
Tomboy Notes
Redshift (alters screen color temperature)
DesktopNova (rotates wallpaper)
Evince (PDF viewer that just works)
Transmission
Asunder (CD ripper)
Audacious (multimedia player)
Handbrake (DVD ripper/converter)
Bleachbit
Hardinfo (system specs)
Virtualbox

My computer is pretty basic use.

@ bester69: you're welcome, I'm glad you liked it, I've been using simple-scan since I started using linux, IMHO is one of the best scanning software available for linux!

Hi craig,

Clementine seems to be death from 2013, :cry:

Thanks for your input, Ive tested today Yarok Player, and im charmed with it, to date one of the best audio player for linux if not the best with audacious.

Pros:
- Very, very well developed (seems professional)
- Very, very smooth--> This like it
- Very mature, nothing seems to crash by the moment
- Well done Integrated interface (streaming music + local audio player)
Cons:
for saying something,
- It seems to lack themes or skins
- Subjetive clumsy handling of the menu funtions

:wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Yeah i didnt actually realise that about clementine, i was using Audacious before Clementine, but audacious used more RAM and took far longer to load up my library. Plus with a few tweaks i preferred the layout of Clementine.

Yarock has impressed me a lot so far, it only uses 30-40MB of RAM for me, the UI is almost always instant, i like how there is a Album view, something that i missed with Clementine. Also if a album is multiple CD's, it will display them individual which i prefer a lot, and still gives you the option to view the CD's as one complete list.
Let's hope it makes it's way into the official debian repos some day :)

I use mpc mostly or ncmpc if I absolutely *need* a visual interface.

HTH :)

EDIT: it may not be pretty but it sounds *much* better than any of those silly GUI clients and that's far more important, right?

Well, ive been discovering mpd, and its pretty great, ive been using Mpdroid with mpd and several graphicals GUIS for mpd. Among all of them i picked up Cantata.
Cantata is one of the most feature packed MPD clients, excelling at common use cases (playlists, streams, library managment, lyrics)
Online services; Jamendo, Magnatune, SoundCloud, and Podcasts.
Radio stream support - with the ability to search for streams via TuneIn, ShoutCast, or Dirble.

https://github.com/CDrummond/cantata

So I would say the best Audio Players for linux could be with no order:
1º Audacious
Cantata / Clementine / Amarok
Yarok
4º Nuvola


i think cantata is some better than Yarok :lol:
CONS:
You have to install and configure an mpd server, which can give you some headeath if your a noob.
