Frequently Asked Questions about Ymuse.

How do I pronounce “Ymuse”?

Like why-muse.

Can you add MPRIS support to Ymuse?

It’s not needed as there is already the mpDris2 project (see next question).

Can I assign media buttons on my keyboard to control Ymuse?

Not directly. But there’s an even better alternative: you can link your MPD instance to your desktop environment using MPRIS. The easiest way to do that is to install the mpDris2 package.

Then MPD will respond to media keys regardless of whether Ymuse is running or not.

In Ubuntu it’s as easy as running:

sudo apt install mpdris2

Why can’t I drag-n-drop multiple tracks at once in the Queue?

Dragging-n-dropping single tracks is supported as of version 0.22 Xylophone. To implement that for multiple tracks one should dig deep into the specifics of drag-n-drop in GTK. It’ll be done as soon as the time permits.
