Hi,
Decided to brush up my C/Linux, and thought a fun project would be a Gnome panel applet to control my squeeze box, i.e.
a method of controlling basic functionality without looking for the remote or opening up a browser etc.

I`m just posting to get some ideas about what peeps might want it to be able to do..

So far I`ve got these.

Power Off/On
Stop/Play/Pause
Skip Forwards/Backwards.
Vol Up/Down

Current track name, position/duration (as a tooltip).

Any others? And also is there anyone interested in testing it when I`ve got something to show?
So far it does Off/On but adding extra bits should be pretty rapid, as I`ve now got all the base code in there..

cheers

I'd be more than willing to test such an applet.

cool, should have a beta by the weekend, just in the process of cleaning up the files/README etc., and doing some
testing/tweaking.
