newer mpdnotify in action

  • Homepage: http://github.com/magcius/mpdsetup

Newer mpdnotify! Please see the github link above. You need to fetch mpdnotify.py and .mpdnotify.conf

This requires PyGTK, the latest development version of python-mpd (http://git.thejat.be/python-mpd.git/), the libnotify bindings for Python, and ConfigObj (comes with bzr).

You need to put .mpdnotify.conf in your home directory.

You can also call "mpdnotify.py display player" to trigger a player notification.

To get multiple notifications to show at once with notify-osd, I have forked the project, and named it notify-osd-better: http://github.com/magcius/notify-osd-better

I have this as a startup program under GNOME's Sessions so that I get notifications as soon as I start playing music.
