CD Player under Linux

I have installed the SlackWare Linux and i have a WindowMaker interface. How can i listen to the CDPlayer? There is a program called xplaycd in the popup menu, but it doesn't run when i try to execute it. How to configure my CD Player to listen to the music?

Try checking whether you have a symbolic
link /dev/cdrom -> /dev/sdd (or whatever
device is your CD-ROM connected to.
If you don't have /dev/cdrom file, create the link yourself. Find out the CD-ROM device,
I'm not sure about Slackware, but in RedHat you can look in /var/log/dmesg.
I see there something like that:
hdd: CREATIVE CD1220E, ATAPI CDROM drive
That means my CD is on /dev/hdd device.
After you know the device, you do a symbolic
link:
cd /dev
ln -s <device> cdrom
That should do the trick (everything is done as root of course).

Sanity test:
Has it worked in Windows before? Maybe you don't have the audio wire from CD to your Sound Card.

In addition:
There are millions of other CD players
for Linux, thousand of them are desgined
especially for WindowMaker dockapp.
