[Solved] Ncmpcpp Visualizer Failed To Load (Blank)

I've install ncmpcpp and mpd and I've followed each guide to enable visualization. Unfortunately I don't know what have cause it to failed to load.
Everytime I hit '9' to reveal it, it just showing blank terminal..for your information all of my songs just played fine.
I used config from one of our member via this thread. here is my .ncmpcpp/config:

##### connection settings #####
mpd_host = "localhost"
mpd_port = "6600"
mpd_music_dir = "/home/drfreddy/Music"
mpd_connection_timeout = "5"
mpd_crossfade_time = "1"
mpd_communication_mode = "notifications" (polling/notifications)

visualizer_fifo_path = "/tmp/mpd.fifo"
visualizer_output_name = "my_fifo"
visualizer_sync_interval = "1"
visualizer_type = "wave" (spectrum/wave)

system_encoding = "utf-8"

##### delays #####
playlist_disable_highlight_delay = "5"
message_delay_time = "4"

# Playlist
song_columns_list_format = "(7f)[cyan]{l} (25)[blue]{a} (40)[red]{t|f} (30)[magenta]{b}"
song_list_format = "{$3[%l]$9} {$5%a$9} - {$2%t$9} - {$6%f$9}"
now_playing_prefix = "$b$1» "
now_playing_suffix = "$/b"
playlist_display_mode = "columns" (classic/columns)
autocenter_mode = "yes"
centered_cursor = "yes"
cyclic_scrolling = "yes"
mouse_list_scroll_whole_page = "no"

# # Bars
song_status_format = "{%a - }{%t - }{%b}"
progressbar_look = "─╼ "
titles_visibility = "no"
header_visibility = "no"
statusbar_visibility = "yes"

# Browser
browser_playlist_prefix = "$2plist »$9 "
browser_display_mode = "classic" (classic/columns)

# Colors
discard_colors_if_item_is_selected = "yes"
header_window_color = "default"
volume_color = "cyan"
state_line_color = "white"
state_flags_color = "green"
main_window_color = "default"
color1 = "cyan"
color2 = "black"
main_window_highlight_color = "red"
progressbar_color = "cyan"

search_engine_display_mode = "columns" (classic/columns)
follow_now_playing_lyrics = "yes"
display_screens_numbers_on_start = "no"
user_interface = "alternative" (classic/alternative)

And here is my .mpdconf:

# An example configuration file for MPD
# See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.


# Files and directories #######################################################
#
# This setting controls the top directory which MPD will search to discover the
# available audio files and add them to the daemon's online database. This 
# setting defaults to the XDG directory, otherwise the music directory will be
# be disabled and audio files will only be accepted over ipc socket (using
# file:// protocol) or streaming files over an accepted protocol.
#
music_directory		"/home/drfreddy/Music/"
#
# This setting sets the MPD internal playlist directory. The purpose of this
# directory is storage for playlists created by MPD. The server will use 
# playlist files not created by the server but only if they are in the MPD
# format. This setting defaults to playlist saving being disabled.
#
playlist_directory		"~/.mpd/playlists"
#
# This setting sets the location of the MPD database. This file is used to
# load the database at server start up and store the database while the 
# server is not up. This setting defaults to disabled which will allow
# MPD to accept files over ipc socket (using file:// protocol) or streaming
# files over an accepted protocol.
#
db_file			"~/.mpd/database"
# 
# These settings are the locations for the daemon log files for the daemon.
# These logs are great for troubleshooting, depending on your log_level
# settings.
#
# The special value "syslog" makes MPD use the local syslog daemon. This
# setting defaults to logging to syslog, otherwise logging is disabled.
#
#log_file			"~/.mpd/log"
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which stores the process ID
# for use of mpd --kill and some init scripts. This setting is disabled by
# default and the pid file will not be stored.
#
#pid_file			"~/.mpd/pid"
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which contains information about
# most variables to get MPD back into the same general shape it was in before
# it was brought down. This setting is disabled by default and the server 
# state will be reset on server start up.
#
#state_file			"~/.mpd/state"
#
# The location of the sticker database.  This is a database which
# manages dynamic information attached to songs.
#
#sticker_file			"~/.mpd/sticker.sql"
#
###############################################################################


# General music daemon options ################################################
#
# This setting specifies the user that MPD will run as. MPD should never run as
# root and you may use this setting to make MPD change its user ID after
# initialization. This setting is disabled by default and MPD is run as the
# current user.
#
user				"drfreddy"
#
# This setting specifies the group that MPD will run as. If not specified
# primary group of user specified with "user" setting will be used (if set).
# This is useful if MPD needs to be a member of group such as "audio" to
# have permission to use sound card.
#
#group				"nogroup"
#
# This setting sets the address for the daemon to listen on. Careful attention
# should be paid if this is assigned to anything other then the default, any.
# This setting can deny access to control of the daemon.
#
# For network
bind_to_address		"any"
#
# And for Unix Socket
#bind_to_address		"~/.mpd/socket"
#
# This setting is the TCP port that is desired for the daemon to get assigned
# to.
#
port				"6600"
#
# This setting controls the type of information which is logged. Available 
# setting arguments are "default", "secure" or "verbose". The "verbose" setting
# argument is recommended for troubleshooting, though can quickly stretch
# available resources on limited hardware storage.
#
log_level			"default"
#
# If you have a problem with your MP3s ending abruptly it is recommended that 
# you set this argument to "no" to attempt to fix the problem. If this solves
# the problem, it is highly recommended to fix the MP3 files with vbrfix
# (available from <http://www.willwap.co.uk/Programs/vbrfix.php>), at which
# point gapless MP3 playback can be enabled.
#
gapless_mp3_playback			"yes"
#
# Setting "restore_paused" to "yes" puts MPD into pause mode instead
# of starting playback after startup.
#
#restore_paused "no"
#
# This setting enables MPD to create playlists in a format usable by other
# music players.
#
#save_absolute_paths_in_playlists	"no"
#
# This setting defines a list of tag types that will be extracted during the
# audio file discovery process. The complete list of possible values can be
# found in the mpd.conf man page.
#metadata_to_use	"artist,album,title,track,name,genre,date,composer,performer,disc"
#
# This setting enables automatic update of MPD's database when files in 
# music_directory are changed.
#
auto_update	"yes"
#
# Limit the depth of the directories being watched, 0 means only watch
# the music directory itself.  There is no limit by default.
#
#auto_update_depth "3"
#
###############################################################################


# Symbolic link behavior ######################################################
#
# If this setting is set to "yes", MPD will discover audio files by following 
# symbolic links outside of the configured music_directory.
#
#follow_outside_symlinks	"yes"
#
# If this setting is set to "yes", MPD will discover audio files by following
# symbolic links inside of the configured music_directory.
#
#follow_inside_symlinks		"yes"
#
###############################################################################


# Zeroconf / Avahi Service Discovery ##########################################
#
# If this setting is set to "yes", service information will be published with
# Zeroconf / Avahi.
#
#zeroconf_enabled		"yes"
#
# The argument to this setting will be the Zeroconf / Avahi unique name for
# this MPD server on the network.
#
#zeroconf_name			"Music Player"

# Client TCP keep alive #######################################################
#
# For clients connected by TCP on supported platforms.
# Allows detection of dangling connections due to clients disappearing from
# the network without closing their connections.
#
# This is not usually necessary but can be useful in cases such as wifi connectected
# clients that go in and out of network range or turn off wifi without closing their
# connections. Combined with low max_connections this can soon cause clients to not
# be able to connect.
#
#
# Enable tcp keepalive on new client connections (default is "no")
#
#tcp_keep_alive "no"
#
# Time in seconds since the last communication on the connection and before
# the keepalive probing is started. (default is 7200 seconds)
#tcp_keep_alive_idle "7200"
#
# Interval in seconds between keepalive probes, once a probe started.
# (default is 75 seconds)

#  Location of your songlengths file, as distributed with the HVSC.
#  The sidplay plugin checks this for matching MD5 fingerprints.
#  See http://www.c64.org/HVSC/DOCUMENTS/Songlengths.faq
#
# default_songlength:
#  This is the default playing time in seconds for songs not in the
#  songlength database, or in case you're not using a database.
#  A value of 0 means play indefinitely.
#
# filter:
#  Turns the SID filter emulation on or off.
#
#decoder {
#	plugin			"sidplay"
#	songlength_database	"/media/C64Music/DOCUMENTS/Songlengths.txt"

Can somebody tell me how to enable the visualization? Am I missing something?

Re: [Solved] Ncmpcpp Visualizer Failed To Load (Blank)

Nevermind..got it working after configured that I have to put this line in .ncmpcpp/config:

visualizer_look = "+|"

Anybody have a better look for the visualizer?
I also have tried several figures like "=="..hmm..kinda like it..
