LXMusic: A very light music player

When it comes to playing music (without having to organize it, label it and so on) I usually use apps that are the lightest possible.

I usually do it using the terminal with CVLC, but when I want something graphic, I install LXMusic. LXMusic is the default player of LXDE, and it is very light And why not? Beautiful. Of course, we cannot expect to find anything advanced, as its function is simply: Play music.

Installation in Debian it is very simple as usual. We open a terminal and put:

$ sudo aptitude install lxmusic

    It is very beautiful, I really liked it. Now I don't know which one to decide between Audacious and LXMusic.

    Hello ... I was just looking for a music player ... but the multimedia keys do not work with it ... which player do you recommend that is light, the multimedia keys work and can give stars to the songs?

    Hello, I have discovered this blog recently, I find it quite interesting. Lxmusic as I see is something similar to deadbeef, I discovered it AUR, since then I always use it.

      It is true. I love DeadBeef, it's one of my favorite audio players and I haven't used it for a long time .. 😀

      Hahaha that was from when I was using Windows. I did with Fruity Loops some short tracks that mixed electronic trends with New Age. But I'm not going to put it on the internet because I don't want to become famous, and then you go from being a Justin Bieber fan to being a fan of mine.

        Electronic trends? Uff ... I already lose the desire, I do not like electronics

        Does anyone know if LXMusic plays playlists like .pls? I want to listen to radio stations.

        PS if you used Fruity Loops why didn't you stay on linux with LMMS? the same and it's not to become famous haha, I do it as a hobby.

        I also started with FL and now that I use linux I switched to LMMS, the bad thing is that it doesn't work quite right, but at least the projects are compatible, and it loads vsts.

          Welcome to the site:
          Well, if I have used LMMS, what happens is that I am not dedicated to the world of music and I have not been fully involved in this application, but it is true that it has become the ideal alternative to FL.
