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 your $HOME (mine is ~/.mpd/mpd.conf) and make sure the user option isn't set. Then open a terminal and run the command `gnome-session-propteries` and you'll get a window listing of all the programs GNOME starts with 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 scientist 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)
