For those of us not so fond of GUI-centric audio players, moc is a welcome alternative.
But lately, the missing option of a proper OSD (On-Screen Display) was grating on my nerves.
So I dug around a bit, and most of what I found was .. not working. At least not in my current system setup (GNU/Debian 8.1).
... But then I stumbled over eXo.
Following up are a few notices about how to get it working (ie. compiled) under GNU/Debian 8.1.
Requires having all compilation tools installed, including the checkinstall package.
- Download the latest sources from Bit
- Unpack in an appropriate directory and create a build directory (
mkdir build && cd build)
- Fetch the sources for liblastfm:
apt-get install liblastfm-dev
cmake ..from said directory, and afterwards, compile eXo with
- Finally, create a debian package and auto-install it with
checkinstall(or just build a package with
Tadaa .. working GUI icon / OSD (via tooltip) ;)
Update: If you have troubles getting the sources compiled under Ubuntu 14.04 because the "outdated" CMake version:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:2 (cmake_minimum_required): CMake 3.1.0 or higher is required. You are running version 22.214.171.124
Then just head over to StackExchange and install the latest one ;)
