Museek+ (or Museek-Plus) is a program-suite for the C++ museek daemon, a Soulseek/Soulfind P2P client. It includes the QT GUI, Museeq, and the Python/Curses TUI, Mucous. It supports chat, transferring files, searching, user-management shares browsing and more.

Museek+ is a fork of Hyriand's original Museek.

Museek+ is enhanced with new features, such as room searching, Interests, and Buddy-only shares. There are quite a few UI changes to Museeq. You can learn about the other New Features at the Wiki

You should compile Museek-Plus with the version of Scons included in the tarball since newer versions of Scons do not always compile Museek correctly, if they compile at all.

The Museek FAQ has some useful hints on compiling Museek.

The Museek Guide explains how to configure and use Museek once it has been installed.

The Museek-Plus Wiki & Trac & Subversion Repository has more information about Museek+. (provided by Le_Vert)
