- Description: Tiny libnotify client that sits idle and waits until mpd changes song, then displays a libnotify message with the new song details. Designed to emulate similar functionality in banshee/rhythmbox/amarok et al.

If you send an mpdmonitor instance the USR1 signal, it will perform the above without waiting until the current song changes. For instance, I have in my xbindkeysrc the following:
# music notify "killall -USR1 mpdmonitor" m:0x1 + c:180
