Music player deamon.
Install the required software:
sudo aura -S mpd ncmpcpp mpdscribble sudo aura -Aa mpd-mpris
Configure mpdscribble (~/.mpdscribble/mpdscribble.conf) with your last.fm credentials:
username = LAST_FM_USERNAME password = LAST_FM_PASSWORD
Start the services (use
enable to run them at boot)
systemctl --user start mpd mpdscribble mpd-mpris
Playerctl is a CLI controller for a number of music players. I have some keybindings in i3 to interact with this.
sudo aura -S playerctl
Ensure that the
mpd-mpris.service is running and check available players with
playerctl -l. If anything is returned it should work.
