Software

Xnoise is a new Linux Media Player for GTK+ environments that just keeps getting better.

Perhaps the last thing that the Linux world needs is yet another media player, but Xnoise bridges the gap in this overcrowded software category. It has an intuitive user interface, speed and essential features.

The latest version, 0.2.19, was released Sept. 17, 2013, and is not yet well-circulated. You can find it in the Ubuntu PPA for Ubuntu and Linux Mint package managers. You can download a compressed version for a .deb installation as well as files for manual installation using a link on the developer's website.
