There is a player called "dead beef" and I even use it on my phone, the name is pretty stupid.  ]:D

#4 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-11-19 21:23:40

^ No problem. Just go ahead. It would be nice to have both options in the how-to. I think the Arch wiki is updated on that matter and is better than before and describes both ways of configuring mpd.

The hacky way? I still wonder why people want it to run as a system daemon. I run it as a user and can decide if I want it to autorun or start it if necessary.

But sure, update the guide, I won't anyway.

You are not forced to anything in Debian, just like in that blog article. I use systemd and I was not forced to use it, a package required it even though systemd did not get installed automatically. I installed it and like it, not everything about it, but it works perfectly. The transition was smooth as butter. The only problem they did in the process was not to inform the user very clearly that you needed systemd if you use package xyz. That should be improved right now.

Many people bitch about it. I am not even sure if they use sid. If not then wait until Jessie is ready and you will see, there is nothing to complain about. If you do not like it, install another init system, it is easy as pie, we on BBQ change the init system more often then our underwear on our test machines.

#8 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-09-09 10:09:45

^ That is true. Good find. If you set up the EQ from my guide it already does it right.

#9 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Mplayer for beginners » 2014-09-09 10:02:57

Though I would recommend using your home folder for all your mplayer configurations.

#10 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-08-04 17:48:52

Just ignore the errors, it should work anyway. I have no idea why they show up and had no time to investigate.

Also ignore this:

Starting Music Player Daemon: mpdFailed to load database: Failed to open 
database file  "/var/lib/mpd/tag_cache": No such file or directory

The tag cache will be available after the first launch.

I should update the how-to but I have no wish to do so, it still works IMO.

#11 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-05-07 17:30:31

Do you mean GMPC is not connecting to your music library? Can you try it with another client just in case, like ncmpcpp/ncmpc.

#12 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-05-06 15:30:38

Did you import all your music into your mpd database with:

mpc update

^ Exactly my dear SecMod tongue. It is the second time for me that I see such an unfixed Grub error.

#14 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-03-24 19:24:55

Look at the mpd output section and audio card settings. Have a good read!

@Sector11, yes I have apt-listbugs, and yes several Sid installs. It is quite possible that I have not noticed, sometimes I jump blindfolded out of sloppiness (not recommended) and the bug did not bite me this time.  smile

As I said, the bug normally affects LVM installs.

Top notch Chilli!

How does one determine if the bugs are relevant to me or not?

By reading the damn output. tongue

This bug is there now for almost a week and it is heavily related to LVM what many do not even use but it seems that some machines are affected and some not regardless LVM.
As already said, you can wait or just put grub2-common and grub-pc on hold like I did, profit.

#17 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » SPAM alert! » 2014-03-16 19:34:11

@Chilli: Thanks for your great work!

#18 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-03-14 16:17:11

Nope. I misunderstood you. I meant using multiple clients with the same server.
At this point I think you need really a good read about all mpd on their wiki or official homepage. wink

#19 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-03-12 10:51:13

You can use multiple clients at the same time, yep.

I am really no sound expert after all but maybe you want to use the software mixer in mpd, actually it is part of the how-to.

The line looks like this:

mixer_type            "software"

#20 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-03-11 14:22:30

Your conf looks fine to me. If mpd is running at the moment, just kill it:

killall mpd

then start mpd again:


It should start and not complain. Then start ncmpcpp from terminal. Mpc is too minimal to see anything, you have to know the commands in how to use it. Ncmpcpp starts an ncurses interface.

Post any errors or other messages here.

Sorry for not being of much help here because I set it up once and forgot about it. smile

#21 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The ultimate MPD guide » 2014-03-10 19:00:50

My user looks exactly like this:

#user                "mpd"

I hope you have the same here. Then, did you do this already, to have all your music into mpd's library:

mpc update

Do you use Alsa or Pulse for audio?

If you have doubts, maybe just post your mpd conf.

#22 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Black Ivan's Font Task Force » 2014-03-03 14:08:07

Ruined. smile Then you were reading blindly. Sorry, not my fault.

Yes, you should disable bitmap fonts. And in fact there is one flaw in my how-to, because when you enable bitmap fonts like mentioned in my how-to they will be applied globally, not so sexy as you already experience. So revert that. There is a better method to use bitmap fonts but only for certain applications. Though I won't update this how-to anymore.

#24 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread » 2014-02-26 17:53:26

^ Not sure. No Iceweasel here but it could be a fonts issue. Can you try and change the font settings in Iceweasel and allow site fonts rather than forcing yours. Or just try with a clean profile, I think it should work and you have to pin down what is wrong.

@Engines: Disculpa, ruta completa, esto fue. smile

Edit: One more thing.

Por qué no copias esta parte:


Escribe lo de arriba exactamente así en la terminal.
