    How to: Install XMMS2

    First add the XMMS 2 repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list

    Code:
     
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Then add

    Code:
    deb http://exodus.xmms.se/debian stable main
    to the bottom of it.
    And save it.

    Then update the apt-get database.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Then finally install the XMMS2 packages (And some extra codecs)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xmms2 xmms2-decoder-mad xmms2-decoder-vorbis
    Then it should work via starting the xmms2 server.

    Code:
    xmms2d &
    Then run the client

    Code:
    xmms2
    To add a playlist you go into a directory with your MP3's or OGG's and run

    Code:
    xmms2 add file-to-play
    Typing
    Code:
    xmms2 help
    Will show you a list of options.
    I'll add how to add the entries in the GNOME/KDE menus a bit later.

    I tried to follow your instructions but I can't get it to work properly, I get this:

    Code:
    simon@Desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install xmms2 xmms2-decoder-mad xmms2-decoder-vorb is
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package xmms2

    Any idea? I'm still very much a novice so I copied and pasted your instructions into the console. I'm still trying to solve problems myself but it's a slow process

    Did you add the repo?
    Add this line to your sources.list
    You might want to copy and paste it with vi or gedit.
    stable main Then continue with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    No,
    no graphical clients yet for GNOME or KDE.
    It is quiet new though so it may take a while.

    Re: How to: Install XMMS2

    Will be attempting this install tonight. I'm currently using XMMS as it's the only thing that'll talk to my usb sound device (Logitech Wireless music system). MPD would be my prefered solution...I like the socket control, but I can't get it to talk to the device. XMMS2 will give me the daemon that I need running on the server, plus the remote handeling (including my bluetooth phone )...so I'll try this asap.

    Re: How to: Install XMMS2

    Well.....I got XMMS2 working on my server, but after trying out a few clients, and either failing to get them working or no liking them much.....I set about creating my own.

    The setup I run (as mentioned above) uses a wireless USB device to beam the sounds over to my speakers. I decided I wanted a web-client so that anyone connected to my internal network could control the player from their laptops or wifi-enabled phones, etc. To get this working, I had to grant the www-data user permission to access audio devices (and external media, which is where the music is stored, usb 200gb drive).

    Next was to create a .asoundrc file for the www-data user which pointed the output to pcm device 1 instead of zero. Again this worked fine.

    I had started to write an xmms2 php module, but I've come across a couple of issues, and I get bored easily ...so for the sake of immediate results, I resorted to using exec and calling the xmms2 cli with instructions

    End result is a bit of a Heath Robinson affair....but it works well. Had a party last sunday..server tucked in it's cupboard under the stairs, speakers in the garden, and a 10hour playlist. Didn't faulter once, and had people making requests and chaging the playlist all day long
