Continuing with my Lightweight Debian configuration, today I wanted to add sound and music to it, I have 4 Gigs of MP3, and I needed to hear them.

Maybe the best option is mpg123 which is command line mp3 player, but today I wanted to try audacious, which looks a lot like XMMS although it is not a fork of it, you can see some good screenshots of it.

To install the sound in my Debian first I needed to install alsa-utils

sudo aptitude install alsa-utils And then install audacious

sudo aptitude install audacious after that everything was running perfect and I was listening to my favorite music. Do not forget to check also some of its features
