[Solved] Ncmpcpp - No sound

Hi everyone, been stumped on this for about a day if someone might be able to assist.

Recently setup mpd, as I would like to use the ncmpcpp-git package. I set it up according to the wiki pages, however ncmpcpp has no sound. I can load an mp3 and have it play through mpd, so the issue seems to only be related to ncmpcpp.

Note: I've set mpd up using the local configuration method: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mp … er_user.29
I've setup ncmpcpp using this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ncmpcpp

~/.mpdconf

music_directory    "/home/ness/music"
playlist_directory "/home/ness/.mpd/playlists"
db_file            "/home/ness/.mpd/mpd.db"
log_file           "/home/ness/.mpd/mpd.log"
pid_file           "/home/ness/.mpd/mpd.pid"
state_file         "/home/ness/.mpd/mpdstate"

~/.cnmpcpp/config

# Path
mpd_music_dir = "/home/ness/Music"

# Playlist
song_list_format = "$5%n$9$1▕ $1$4%a$9$1 - $1$7%t$1 $R$2[%b]$9"
song_columns_list_format = "(8f)[blue]{l}  (36)[yellow]{a} (46)[green]{t|f} (14)[red]{b}"
now_playing_prefix = "$b$1"
now_playing_suffix = "$/b"
playlist_display_mode = "classic" (classic/columns)
autocenter_mode = "yes"
centered_cursor = "yes"

# Bars •
song_status_format = "$8%a $1// $8%t $1// $8%b {(Disc %d) }$1// $8%y $1"
progressbar_look = "─╼─"
titles_visibility = "no"
display_bitrate = "yes"

# Browser
browser_playlist_prefix = "$2plist »$9 "

#main_window_color = "default"

progressbar_color = "black"
statusbar_visibility = "yes"
header_visibility = "yes"
statusbar_color = "black"
active_column_color = "yellow"
visualizer_color = "magenta"

# Others
mpd_crossfade_time = "5"
#song_window_title_format = "MPD: {%a > }{%t}{ [%b{ Disc %d}]}|{%f}"
search_engine_display_mode = "columns" (classic/columns)
follow_now_playing_lyrics = "no"
display_screens_numbers_on_start = "no"
clock_display_seconds = "yes"
#use_console_editor = "yes"

# Mouse Support
mouse_support = "yes"
header_text_scrolling = "yes"
fancy_scrolling = "yes"
cyclic_scrolling = "no"
lines_scrolled = "1" 


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

Additionally, none of the visualizations work - if someone might have a suggestion for that. Thanks.

Re: [Solved] Ncmpcpp - No sound

Thanks. I fixed that and still didn't get any play. For some reason the area where it's supposed to show what song is playing would only come on and blink for a second, then vanish.

I actually reinstalled mpd and ncmpcpp-git, but this time included all the optional dependencies and it seemed to solve it. This guide helped too: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … mpd-guide/

Re: [Solved] Ncmpcpp - No sound

Unix/Linux files and directories are case sensitive; whatever other issues you had, it wasn't going to work with {M,m}usic...

Yep. I've been around unix/linux for a bit (not so long on this distro). Was just a typo.....
