[INFO] ncmpcpp on ArchMerge

NCurses Music Player Client (Plus Plus) runs in a terminal.
For the installation:

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S mpd
sudo pacman -S ncmpcpp
after that:

Code: Select all

mkdir ~/.config/mpd
then in your favorite text-editor in my case geany:

Code: Select all

geany ~/.config/mpd/mpd.conf
and copy this simple configuration for Music Player Daemon (mpd):

Code: Select all

####### MPD CONFIG #######

# Required files
db_file            "~/.config/mpd/database"
log_file           "~/.config/mpd/log"

# Optional
music_directory    "~/Music"
playlist_directory "~/.config/mpd/playlists"
pid_file           "~/.config/mpd/pid"
state_file         "~/.config/mpd/state"
sticker_file       "~/.config/mpd/sticker.sql"

audio_output {  
      type  "alsa"  
      name  "mpd alsamixer-output"
      mixer_type "software"

audio_output {  
type               "fifo"  
name               "toggle_visualizer"
path               "/tmp/mpd.fifo"
format             "44100:16:2"

####### END MPD CONFIG #######
after that in a terminal:

Code: Select all

mkdir .config/mpd/playlist
Then type (again in a terminal):

Code: Select all

and you are done!!

Thanks so much for the tutorial, really digging it so far, so much better than cmus.

I think the setup is slightly messed up. needs two small things. This line in the mpd config lists

Code: Select all

playlist_directory "~/.config/mpd/playlists"
but later this line

Code: Select all

mkdir .config/mpd/playlist
needs to be

Code: Select all

mkdir ~/.config/mpd/playlists
Thanks again
