Nuvola Players handles multimedia keys, shows desktop notifications, integrates with various sound menus, applets and launchers and more. Additional features include Last FM scrobling.

Nuvola Player 3.0.4 changelog

  • A crash under Wayland session was fixed (GDK_BACKEND set to x11)
  • The accelerated compositing mode is disabled with WebKitGTK < 2.13.4 due to a WebKitGTK+ bug that may crash systems with certain graphic cards
  • A non-functional local-storage-directory setting was removed as it produced a console warning.
  • The design of the Welcome screen was improved.
  • It is possible to disable media keys in the Preferences dialog
