music player daemon controlled from the gnome panel or cli

Quark is an audio player, for geeks, by geeks. It runs in the background with access provided via a FIFO in the filesystem. It uses Xine-lib for playing music, and can therefore play any file format supported by Xine.

Quark comes with a couple front-ends to make it more useful: * charm-quark - a CLI interface * strange-quark - a Gnome notification area interface.

Package version:3.21-3.3

% charm-quark

% strange-quark
