NAME

audtty - Control Audacious from the command line with a friendly ncurses interface

SYNOPSIS

audtty [<-|+>ahlntV] [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

audtty is a simple application for controlling Audacious from the command line. It is designed to make common, simple tasks fast and easy to do. It is operated using arrow keys and standard Audacious keys, to make it easy and intuitive to learn.

OPTIONS

To negate a short option, use '+' instead of '-' (e.g. +a).
 
Long-options are negated with no-, (e.g. --no-read-all).
The keys for basic control are as follows:
+-----------------------+
 
| << > || o >> |
 
+-----------------------+
 

z x c v b
-a, --read-all
Read all titles and lengths on startup (EXTREMELY SLOW) (default off).
-h, --help
Print help message.
-l, --length
Show length of track in playlist (SLOW) (default on).
-n, --numbers
Show numbers in playlist (default on).
-t, --title
Read the title from ID3/ogg-tags (SLOW) (default on).
-V, --version
Display version information.
Tip: Things going slow? Try audtty -ntl

CONFIGURATION FILES

/etc/audtty.conf
Global configuration file.
$HOME/.audtty.conf
Local configuration file, specific for each user. Can be used to override the global options.
The syntax of the configuration files are long options without the '--', one on each line.
Example:
numbers
 
title
 
length no-read-all

BUGS

The xmms remote controlling library provides no good way of detecting changes in the playlist, and therefore audtty might need to be told to reload the playlist if songs are moved. Do so by pressing L. If the length of the playlist changes, audtty will assume the playlist has changed and reload the entire playlist to make sure it is correct.
 
Probably lots more.
