The xfce4-mpd-panel-plugin doesn't display the information about the track being played or tracks in the playlist.
I'm sorry I've chosen wrong component, but I coudn't find the mpd plugin on the list. I coudn't find any other means to report bugs mentioned on the plugin's page, so I thought I'll give it a try. The bugzilla required me to choose any component, so I've picked the one that is most similar in terms of functionality.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the xfce4-mpc-panel-plugin to yuor panel
2. Set it up to connect to your mpd daemon, make it play a song
3. Hover your mouse over the plugin. The tooltip says: "Volume: 50% - Mpd playing - [(null) - (null)] -/- (#(null)) (null)"
4. Middle-click the plugin. The track list displays a lot of entries that say "(null) - (null)"
(null)s instead of information about played/available tracks
Actual information about the titles, authors, track numbers, length, etc. retrieved from MPD
panel plugin version: 3.0
mpd (MPD: Music Player Daemon) 0.12.1
Is your plugin compiled from source, or do you use feisty binary ? is it compiled against libmpd ?
ldd $base_path_for_xfce/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-mpc-plugin | grep libmpd to check this..
Are your songs correctly id3-tagged ? if not, it's normal.. i don't retrieve the filename as a fallback atm..
btw, can someone create a category for my plugin, and assign it to me ? thanks :)
I'm using the Feisty build.
sheep@ghostwheel:~$ ldd /usr/lib/xfce4-mpc-plugin/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-mpc-plugin | grep libmpd
libmpd.so.0 => /usr/lib/libmpd.so.0 (0xb7802000)
I just tested the id3 of the songs, and you are right! For some reason all the songs I had enqueued were not tagged. The tagged songs are displayed correctly. Terribly sorry for the fuss, I didn't notice it. I will just tag the songs.
I'll change the severity to "minor".
Thank you for this plugin, it's extremely useful for me.
