Quark is an audio player, for geeks, by geeks.

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 GTK System Tray interface


Recent releases:

3.24 - October 9, 2010
This is a minor bug-fix release: The translations were messed up in the last release, same with the icon for the editor window in strange-quark, and the autotools usage has been improved a bit.
3.23 - July 9, 2010
Quark is maintained again. This release uses a GtkStatusIcon instead of the custom trayicon widget, for it was using an ugly background when embedded in the LXDE panel. This also fixes an occasional crash in strange-quark when opening files. A patch used by many distributions to allow deprecated Gtk features is included.
