Display MPD status on a lcdproc server.
MPDLcd is a small adapter which will display the status of a MPD server on a LCD screen, through lcdproc.
It allows defining various layouts depending on LCD size, with fix or moving parts.
The command line is quite simple:
# Connect to the local mpd and lcdproc, logging to stderr mpdlcd
Other options are possible:
mpdlcd --mpd=mpd.example.org:1234 --lcdproc=lcd.example.org:456 \ --syslog --syslog-facility=user2 --loglevel=debug --lcdd_debug
Please use mpdlcd --help or man mpdlcd for a full help description.
The simplest way to install MPDLcd is to use your distribution’s packages. It requires the lcdproc and python_mpd2 Python libraries.
Use the Sunrise overlay at http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/sunrise/browser/app-misc/mpdlcd
Install the python-mpd package:
apt-get install python-mpd
Install the lcdproc package from PIP
pip install lcdproc
Install mpdlcd from PIP:
pip install mpdlcd
If it hasn’t been packaged for your distribution yet, you can also install from sources by hand:
pip install mpdlcd
This will pull in the python_mpd2 and lcdproc Python libraries.
Example initd scripts are provided in the initd/ folder.
Issues should be reported on https://github.com/rbarrois/mpdlcd/issues.
Crash report should include:
Current MPD status (playing, stopped, …)
Custom /etc/mpdlcd.conf file content
Current MPDLcd version, as given by mpdlcd --version
Full output from running MPDLcd in debug mode, typically with the following options:
mpdlcd --no-syslog --logfile=- --loglevel=debug
The main channel for reporting issues would be https://github.com/rbarrois/issues.
