Never having used noatun, I thought I would try it.  The man page works, 
but  "noatun" alone or "noatun betty.mp3" just returns a command prompt.  
What should happen?

Using kubuntu 8.04

noatun -v
Qt: 3.3.8b
KDE: 3.5.10
Noatun: 2.10.0

 uname -a
Linux blacky 2.6.24-23-generic #1 SMP Wed Apr 1 21:47:28 UTC 2009 i686
