MPRIS Applet project web-site: http://mprisapplet.sourceforge.net
==== Description ====
MPRIS Applet is a project aims to provide desktop panel applet/plugin
allow the user to control MPRIS capable players.
Unlike Panflute Music Applet, special plugin for each player isn't
required in order to be compatible with this applet/plugin. Only MPRIS
version 1 or 2 support is required from the player.
Unlike Ayatana Sound Menu, which is Ubuntu only, MPRIS Applet isn't
distro depended. Only UNIX style is required.
Currently supported Desktop Environments are GNOME and Xfce(also, a
basic GTK2/GTK3 window).
However, more desktops support is planned, and very possible thanks to
this project libraries structure.
This package contains both GTK(both version 2 and 3) box for the
applet/plugin as library and relevant components, and isn't depended on DE.
==== Installation ====
tarball = *.tar[.*] (i.e. not from mercurial repo.)
./configure [--prefix=(prefered prefix)]
make install ---> AS ROOT(sudo, su, login root)
Just follow the instruction for tarball above, and replace the "configure"
in "autogen.sh" the command line parameters are the same.
Alternatively, you can run the ./cook script(with no parameters) and then
running configure as explained for tarball above.
You will need autotools if you use download from repository, since the
package is not ready for configure script yet (and it's not exist).
==== Uninstall ====
CD(change directory) in terminal to the source directory you've installed
from, and type:
sudo make uninstall
==== Makefile tricks ====
After configuration, you can remove unneeded files, if you wish.
Read carefully, this might be one way operation if you don't have vala
make mostlyclean => Remove only the temporary object,libtool,etc. files
that was generated/compiled/linked in order to build the final result.
However, it doesn't delete C source files, headers, and generated vapis.
make clean => Do the previous + Remove final results.
make distclean => Keep only the files that needed if autotools are
availible. It doesn't delete C source files, headers, and generated vapis.
make maintainer-clean => Do the previous + Remove any C source files,
headers, and generated vapis. This is what you get when cloning the
