Getting started on Linux, using MPC as a client Edit

This describes how to run mpd as user process. To have it running as system process edit /etc/mpd.conf and only use full paths. (relative paths like ~/ will cause problems.)

  • Install MPD and MPC.
  • Fill in the required MPD configuration options in the ~/.mpdconf file - see Configuration
  • Enter the following into a Terminal window:
    • mpd
    • mpc add /
    • mpc play
  • mpc is a client that needs to be installed. IE, not a part of the mpd-sources
  • After installing from source, chances are MPD's volume is set to zero. mpc volume +80 helps out then.
  • Enjoy! If you are having trouble, check the FAQ. Still having trouble? Get Technical Support.
