MPD is a program for playing music via a deamon process instead of using a client. It also incorperates a music database for quick access, playlists, and a variety of frontend options.

Step 1: Set Up MPD

  • Install MPD via Pacman
 # pacman -S mpd
  • Edit the config file

Open up /etc/mpd.conf in your favorite text editor. The first line you need to change is

 music_directory    "/mnt/music"

Replace /mnt/music with the location of your music files. Uncomment out the lines beginning with db_file and pid_file as well
