Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Pragha is an open-source lightweight music player developed in GTK+ and having a simple interface. Among others, it has support for the most popular audio formats, uses SQLite for its music database and a twin-panel design, allows the users to search in the playlist via Ctrl+F, has an equalizer feature and integrates well with GNOME. Unfortunately, it provides only some basic functions, satisfying only the users that only want to listed to music.
The latest version available is Pragha 1.2.2, which comes only with fixes for some already known bugs.
