I have arch running on my desktop and I'm trying to play music with mpd using ncmpcpp. They are both up and running, but the problem is when I open ncmpcpp it doesn't show my music. I copied the music to /var/lib/mpd/music under recommendation from the arch wiki and gave it access using these commands:
# mkdir /var/lib/mpd/music # echo "/home/cam/Music /var/lib/mpd/music none bind" >> /etc/fstab # mount -a
I have changed the music directory in /etc/mpd.conf, ~/.mpd/mpd.conf, and ~/.ncmpcpp/config to reflect the music being at /var/lib/mpd/music. I'm posting here because I feel like the arch forums would not be so kind to this type of simple error.
