GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment) is a user-friendly set of applications and desktop tools to be used in conjunction with a window manager for the X Window System. GNOME is similar in purpose and scope to CDE and KDE, but GNOME is based completely on Open Source software. The gnome-applets package provides Panel applets which enhance your GNOME experience.

You should install the gnome-applets package if you would like embed small utilities in the GNOME panel.
Note that the cdplayer_applet only plays through the builtin cdrom headphone jack, and to use it you must deprotect the CDROM device using chmod and ioconfig.
