Hello all !
I've written a small MPD (www.musicpd.org) client plugin for the xfce
A screenshot is always better than words:
Current features :
- prev/next/stop/play buttons with gtk stock icons (your gtk-icon-theme
may provide such icons.. Tango, Rodent and Nuvola does)
- mousewheel to increase/decrease volume
- current title shown as tooltip
- configurable MPD host/port/password
Code is here :
It is based on test-plugin, code should be clean. Interesting things are
in panel-plugin/xfce4-mpc-plugin.c ..
This code _may_ contain bugs, but won't screw your xfce install. I'm
using it since a week or two and it didn't crash :)
To build it, you'll need qballcow's libmpd headers and libraries
installed. In a near future, i'd like to write my own interface with mpd
to get rid of this dependency. I'd like to write some .po too... but
there is not a lot of strings in the code.
I hope this would be useful to some of you, and any feedback would be
highly appreciated. For direct contact, i'm often idling on irc (gaston
on #xfce at freenode).
