    In your terminal just type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xmms2
    here's a tutorial for xmms2 http://www.dannybuntu.com/2009/02/ho...-terminal.html

    If you wanna try moc too, install it in the same manner, and just launch it by simply typing moc into your terminal after that, and an interface similar to midnight commander will pop out. For moc your terminal window has to be fullscreen or enough wide.

    Sox it's primarely destined for audio files conversion so you shouldn't install it if you just want something to play your audio files. But if you choose to install it in your terminal just do

    Code:
    man sox
    and it will tell you everything that's to be known about it.

    MPlayer also has a terminal option.

    I have the following alias in my .bashrc

    Code:
    alias progmusic='mplayer -shuffle /$HOME/Music/Programming/*'
