Alternatives to osd_cat ?


Hello,

I am running this to increase the volume:

Code:
#/bin/sh
/usr/bin/amixer set PCM "$1+" ;
osd_cat -p bottom -d 1 -s 1 -o 120   -A center -f "-adobe-new century schoolbook-medium-i-normal--34-240-100-100-p-182-iso8859-1" -c green -b percentage -P $(amixer get PCM | grep Le
ft: | awk -F" " '{print $5}' | tr -d "[]") -T "Volume"
I would like to have something for xmms, an xosd that says the song I play next, and other stuffs too.

If someone has any idea ... I know that gnome has xosd into the metacity and also the gnome keyboard config for multimedia keyboard.
thanks
Happy Tux !

I don't think that XMMS has an interface that would allow you
to get the name of the *next* song. It does, however, have
built-in capabilities to display the current song, the volume
setting, and things like having pushed the stop-button.

I'm using fluxbox, have bound my multimedia keys using
the fluxbox keys file and a little tool (can't remember
the name at the moment - this is all on my machine at
work, I think it's xmmscontrol) to stop/start the sound,
adjust the volume and skip forward/backward between songs.

And if osd is installed you don't need anything extra for
xmms to feed-back that info to your osd. Mine's running
minimised at all times.



Cheers,
Tink
