Introduction

Ncmpcpp or ncmpc++ is UI very similar to ncmpc, but it provides new useful features such as support for regular expressions in search engine, extended song format, items filtering, last.fm support, ability to sort playlist, local filesystem browser and other minor functions. To use it, a functional Mpd must be present on the system since ncmpcpp/mpd work together in a client/server relationship.

The shell "GUI" for ncmpcpp is highly customizable. Edit Template:Filename to your liking. For inspiration, see the following resources:

Installation

The official package resides in [community]

# pacman -S ncmpcpp

Enabling visualization

For visualization, one needs the Template:Package AUR package from the AUR. Once built, add a few lines to Template:Filename to enable the generation of the [Wikipedia:fft|fft] data for the visualization:

audio_output {
        type                    "fifo"
        name                    "My FIFO"
        path                    "/tmp/mpd.fifo"
}

Additional lines need to be added to Template:Filename

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

Users can chose between either a spectrum analyzer or wave form.
