MPD with GNOME3 running as user

I managed to get mpd & mpdscribble working with GNOME3. Make sure none of the services are enabled in systemd. Then edit the mpdconf file in you $HOME (mine is ~/.mpd/mpd.conf) and make sure the user option isn't set. The open a terminal and run the command `gnome-session-propteries` and you'll get a window listing all the programs GNOME starts once you've logged in. Just add MPD and mpdscribble and all should be working the next time you login. Jonnybarnes (talk) 21:39, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Style comment

I am not a rocket science post-doc and I use mpd. I don't understand your criticism.Graysky (talk) 15:46, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

This article dives into tangents and edge-cases, and makes mpd look far more complicated than it actually is. Right now, it has little to not merit compared to the User's manual. -- Alad (talk) 21:37, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
No offense intended, but would you be willing to mock-up how you think it should be? Graysky (talk) 06:09, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

User service is available again as of 0.19.21-1

The user service is available again, so the section Autostart with systemd is correct again. Dillebidum (talk) 10:14, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
