Starting mpg123 problem


Hi all folks,

Debian - unstable
GNOME 2.4 desktop

Any folk has experience running 'mpg123'

http://www.mpg123.de

I have installed it from Debian website

# apt-get install mpg123

# which mpg123
/usr/bin/mpg123
# whereis mpg123
mpg123: /usr/bin/mpg123 /usr/share/man/man1/mpg123.1.gz
# find / -name mpg123
/etc/alternatives/mpg123
/var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/mpg123
/usr/bin/mpg123

# mpg123 -V
mpg321 version 0.2.10. Copyright (C) 2001, 2002 Joe Drew.

I could not get 'mpg123' started on GNOME desktop. Neither can I find it from
Application -> Multimedia

# mpg123
can't start it.

Kindly advise how to start mpg123. Is it on GUI or only on command line.

TIA

B.R.

type mpg123 at command line to get its arguments and run it that way ...
to my knowledge you have to download a frontend for it if you want GUI, which you can find some here

ps. don't double post ;-0

mpg123 is a command line app.

In Gnome you can either run it in a terminal, or you can use 'Run Application' to have it going in the background, but you'll need to tell it what file to play. IE,

$ mpg321 /home/thisuser/example.mp3

There are graphical frontends for mpg123, but imho you'd be better off using XMMS or Zinf in that case.

# cd /tmp/mpgfe-1.0.0
#./configure

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

I ran into problem to play music CD with 'Grip' and could not solve it for several days. There is no hardware problem because I have another mobile drive on this PC running WinXP, playing music CD without problem

A guy on Grip list advised me to try 'mpg123'. That is the story.
