I was looking for a small, responsible player that can read cue sheets and I eventually found this:

DeadBeef audio player

homepage: http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/about.html

link to source package: http://sourceforge.net/projects/deadbeef/files/deadbeef-0.4.1.tar.bz2/download

According to "about" section, the player's features are:

mp3, ogg vorbis, flac, ape, wv, wav, m4a, mpc, cd audio (and many more)
sid, nsf and lots of other popular chiptune formats
ID3v1, ID3v2.2, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, APEv2, xing/info tags support
character set detection for non-unicode id3 tags - supports cp1251 and iso8859-1
unicode tags are fully supported as well (both utf8 and ucs2)
cuesheet (.cue files) support, with charset detection (utf8/cp1251/iso8859-1)
tracker modules like mod, s3m, it, xm, etc
HVSC song length database support for sid
gtk2 interface with efficient custom widgets
no GNOME or KDE dependencies
minimize to tray, with scrollwheel volume control
drag and drop, both inside of playlist, and from filemanagers and such
control playback from command line
global hotkeys
multiple playlists
album artwork display
18-band graphical equalizer
metadata editor
user-customizable groups in playlists
user-customizable columns with flexible title formatting
radio and podcast support for ogg vorbis, mp3 and aac streams
gapless playback
plugin support; bundled with lots of plugins, such as global hotkeys and last.fm scrobbler; sdk is included
duration calculation is as precise as possible for vbr mp3 files (with and without xing/info tags)
was tested and works on x86, x86_64 and ppc64 architectures. should work on most modern platforms

I checked it and I think it might be the player I have always looked for! NATIVE (!!!) cue support (it's a BIG shame that only a few linux players works with cue, and personally i have a lot of music as one big flac and one cue file), much faster than Amarok (I really don't need many functions that are in Amarok), integrates well with system theme, has NATIVE EQUALIZER, many plugins - such as last.fm scrobbler, well, I really have to test it more.

It's a fresh project, but I think, having considered the aspects above, it deserves a place in every linux distribution repository.

i made pisi package for this app. you can download it from here:

you can use pisiyap to create basic pisi files with graphical interface. search for "pisiyap" at package manager. also you can take a look at parduswiki for making final retouches to make your own pisi packages:

Thank you very much, I think a lot of Pardus users will choose DeaDBeeF for a main audio player Smiley

I wrote a mail to the author of DeaDBeef whether he could post a link to pisi package on the player's homepage.
