Hi

Well i use beep-media-player now, as my default mp3 player, as i find it a bit more light-weight than xmms, and it looks prettier :D

Anyway i used to use gkrellmms plugin to control xmms. However the control socket for beep differs and if you try to use gkrellmms then you just get garbled titles, and you can't use the play controls (skip, pause etc)

So here's a little simple hack you can do to fix it

download the gkrellms 2.1.whatever source

extract

edit Makefile and replace

XMMS_INCLUDE ?= `xmms-config --cflags`
XMMS_LIB ?= `xmms-config --libs`

with

XMMS_INCLUDE ?= `beep-config --cflags`
XMMS_LIB ?= `beep-config --libs`

edit gkrellmms.h and playlist.h and replace both instances of

#include <xmms/xmmsctrl.h>
with
#include <beep/beepctrl.h>

Enjoy!

Rick

riksta: good solution. works wonderfully

everyone else: this also works with xmmsctrl, if you plan on using that with beep.

just a note that you might have to change

Code:
#include <beep/beepctrl.h>


to

Code:
#include <bmp/beepctrl.h>


if you use the latest beep player from CVS, as I do

also you may have to edit the plugin dir of the Makefile to remove the local part of the path

I've tried this (with riksta's edit) but I still get garbled titles, and the open button still opens xmms... Any ideas?

cptmorgan:
ebuild /path-to-ebuild unpack
cd /portage-tmp-dir/work
nano -w Makefile
ebuild /path-to-ebuild compile install qmerge
