Ok--so here's what's going on.

mpd used to work great, but now mpc gives the error

error: Connection refused

and ncmpcpp gives the error:

Cannot connect to mpd: problems connecting to "localhost" on port 6600: Connection refused

Trying to use espeak gives the error

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)

Audio works in VLC just fine.

In a previous install, mpd would work until I used another application that used sound. Now it won't work at all even after a reboot.


(without most comments--I'm viewing over ssh)

# An example configuration file for MPD
# See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.

Hope someone can make sense of this!
