your player SUCKS!

it does not recognizes a CD on the CD drive! how basic is that?

only the archaic rithmbox works… and it also sucks. and not to mention Real Player, which is real useless.

is there ANYTHING worth installing in linux to play music?

You can try vlc, deadbeef, clementine, amarok and many more music players. or you can always try to install a media center so you can not only listen to music but also can watch movies .. try xbmc

Does anyone have any idea why Guayadeque isn’t scrobbling to last.fm?

I really like the player and would like to keep using it.

Just tested the Guayadeque radio option but it doesn’t work at all… can’t connect to any station 🙁 Don’t know whats the cause of it or how to solve it.
