FAQ Edit

  • Q: Some of the features you say you have, don't work. F.e. the tag-browser doesn't show up.
  • A: Gmpc heavily depends on functionality found in mpd v0.12.0. If connected to a stable version of mpd (v0.11.5) it will disable parts that wont work. As of gmpc 0.14.0 using mpd older then version 0.12.0 is no longer supported. It is possible that gmpc uses some features that aren't available in the latest stable release of mpd, if this is the case, gmpc will either disable this feature or workaround it.
  • Q: It sucks.
  • A: Thanks, how can I make it suck less?
  • Q: Fileshare, Download music, etc ,etc
  • A: MPD is a music player, nothing more, nothing less.
  • Q: Gnome Music Player Client, Does it need gnome dependencies?
  • A: No, since version 0.12 gnome dependencies are optional. With the come of plugin support in 0.13, gmpc does not depend on gnome anymore. But some plugins do.
  • Q: Why don't you rename it GTK Music Player Client then?
  • A: Why would I. It has been this way for 4 years.
