gentoo - music detection for audacious? [May. 23rd, 2007|06:57 am]


i admit that it's fairly likely i'm missing something obvious here, but...

i recently upgraded logjam to 4.4.1, and it broke music detection for xmms. it now gives me an error message about needing 'logjam-xmms-client' when previously it has worked fine. i also took the opportunity to try out audacious, which i don't see an option for, but i would assume would be very similar to xmms in terms of music detection. so what do i need to do to get music detection working again for me in gentoo? is there a compile-time option that it's not giving me a USE flag for? any help appreciated.

Use the On Song Change plugin in Audacious to write the current song info to a file in your home directory. Then have LogJam read that file when it detects music. This seems to be the only way around that I've found.

Good job! I would totally use that, but I switched to Amarok completely about a month ago.

ah cool, thanks! i'll give this a shot.

i have to say, the fact that they just up and removed xmms from portage very much annoys me and i'm surprised there doesn't appear to be more outcry. sure, it's outdated at this point, but not everybody keeps everything on their system completely state of the art, and i can't see any reason not to leave it there even if it is unmaintained.
