If you installed gmpc from your distro's repository, uninstall gmpc and libmpd first

To intstall gmpc you need the following programs to be installed:

* gcc compiler
   * libtool
   * intltool Version 0.21 or higher
   * glib
   * libcurl
   * libsoup
   * gobject
   * gtk+-2.0
   * gmodule
   * libglade
   * gthreads
   * libmpd
   * gob 2.0
   * hicolor theme


Install libmpd Edit

Get a copy of libmpd and extract it:

tar -zxf libmpd-0.18.0.tar.gz

Enter the directory:

cd libmpd-0.18.0/

Run the needed autotools:

./configure

Watch the output carefully for errors. If it was succesfull build libmpd:

make

And install it (you might want to run this as root):

make install


Install gmpc Edit

Get a copy of gmpc and extract it:

tar -zxf gmpc-0.18.0.tar.gz

Enter the directory:

cd gmpc-0.18.0/

Run the needed autotools:

./configure

If it complains about not finding libmpd, make sure you have it installed and pkg-config can find it. For example if you installed libmpd in /opt and pkg-config cannot find it try telling it where to look by setting the following environment variable:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig/

and rerun configure

If it was succesfull you can build gmpc

make

And install it (you might want to run this as root):

make install

Don't forget this step, gmpc won't run without this step.

If everything went smooth, you should be able to run gmpc.


Install a gmpc plugin Edit

For this example I use the coveramazon plugin, but it applies for all plugins:

Get a copy of the plugin and extract it:

tar -zxf gmpc-coveramazon-0.18.0.tar.gz

Enter the directory:

cd gmpc-coveramazon-0.18.0/

Run the needed autotools:

./configure

If it complains about not finding libmpd or gmpc, make sure you have it installed and pkg-config can find it. For example if you installed libmpd in /opt and pkg-config cannot find it try telling it where to look by setting the following environment variable:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig/

and rerun autogen.sh

If it was succesfull you can build gmpc-coveramazon

make

And install it (you might want to run this as root):

make install

If everything went smooth, after restarting gmpc, you should be able to see this plugin in gmpc.
