MPD and xbindkeys.

Allright so I want to set some keys on keyboard so I can stop MPD when I don't want to listing to my music. I just can't figure out how this is set. I now GNOME has this option, and I found it very useful.

Any suggestions? smile

Re: MPD and xbindkeys.

In Openbox I use Xmdomap to link media keys to MPD (mpc) seems to work ok..

Re: MPD and xbindkeys.

Use xev to find keycodes ...

bind keycode to a F<number> then add to openbox key menu

Depends on what wm you use

<keybind key="F30">
      <action name="Execute"><execute>mpc volume -10</execute></action>
  </keybind>

F30 is bound to volume - on my keyboard

entry in .Xmodmap

keycode 174=F30

Re: MPD and xbindkeys.

Yeah, that mpc packages is what I needed. Now I can Play and Pause through some special keys. But, that is just abot it. I can't stop the music or go Next song etc. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Here's my .xbindkeysrc:

----snip----
## My key commands: ##

# xscreensaver
"xscreensaver-command -lock"
        m:0x0 + c:110
# Start ncmpc
"xterm -e ncmpc"
        m:0x0 + c:237
# Start an xterm
"xterm"
        Ctrl + Alt + x

## MPD controls ##

# Play
"mpc play"
        Mod1 + m:0x0 + c:162
# Pause
"mpc pause"
        m:0x0 + c:162
# Stop
"mpc stop"
        Control + Mod1 + m:0x0 + c:162
# Next song
"mpc next"
        Mod1 + m:0x0 + c:105
# Prev song
"mpc prev"
        Mod1 + m:0x0 + c:99



## Alsa controls ##

# sound volume 1% up
"amixer sset Master 5+"
        m:0x0 + c:176
# sound volume 1 % down
"amixer sset Master 5-"
        m:0x0 + c:174
# mute sounds
"amixer sset Master mute"
        m:0x0 + c:160
# unmute sounds
"amixer sset Master unmute"
        Mod1 + m:0x0 + c:160
