Thanks :) - Jun 08 2012
When adding an album the CD numbers are not used. So tracks of double CDs are sorted like this in the playlist:
01 - track 1 of cd1
01 - track 1 of cd2
02 - track 2 of cd1
02 - track 2 of cd2
...

1. OK, I should check this with another icon theme. For me it did not show any cd icon. But still it will be a problem if icon size changes.

2. I understand. Maybe the header can have more than one line? E.g. the album year in the second line. This would increase the tiny size.

3. I have plenty of memory and I love album arts :D OK, this is not really important.

Hi, I think the new version (0.6.1) has improved much, thanks for that :)
And I have another 4 requests:
1. In library view there should be a place holder for the album art that is shown while the arts are loading. The place holder should have the same size like the album arts. At the moment the search results are moving further down as soon as the album arts appear.
2. Make size of the album arts in the grouped album view (playlist) configurable, too.
3. Add an bigger maximum size for all album arts
4. On hovering the album art in the upper left corner a higher resolution image could be shown (e.g. 500 px)

Thanks and keep up the good work! - Apr 17 2012
I'm doing this at least 10 times a week but I could probably write a small tool with systray icon for this task myself. - Mar 21 2012
1. Well, I'm using one soundcard connected to my hifi stereo and one sound card connected to my headphones amp. So I can disable the output to the stereo while using the headphones.
Another use case that comes to my mind is enabling http stream output for friends while listening.
These are IMHO cool features in mpd that make mpd unique ;) - Mar 20 2012
OK, thanks for explanation. - Mar 20 2012
1. Ouch, I've forgotten a word :) I've meant quick access to activated sound outputs. GMPC has a menu entry for it and I'm using it to activate/deavtivate mpd's output to various sound cards
2. Actually it is not important which one is the artist or title. Of course a song called "Floyd - Wish you were pink" would be found, too. But still it would be more intutive to search for songs. E.g. GMPC offers a search option "any" to search all tags and it's the default behaviour of Amarok and Exaile.
3. Any chance to recognize the first image found in the album folder? ;)
4. Well, I'm using the comment tag for extended infos about the recording, e.g. "2012 remastered version", but that stuff is just cosmetic. - Mar 20 2012
I also have some feature request:
1. A button for quick access to activated, e.g. opening a radio list like in GMPC
2. Make library search configurable to search all tags at once (at least artist, album and title). So I can search for "pink floyd wish" to find the "Wish You Were Here" album or track.
3. I really don't like my music player to make changes to my music folder, so I don't think automatically writing cover arts directly to the music folder is a good idea. Also my cover arts are not named "cover.jpg", but most times $ALBUMNAME.jpg/png
4. Finally a rather unimportant one: make the cover art in the upper left corner bigger, add more tag infos besides the buttons: comment, file type, bitrate

As long time Amarok user and fan this project finally seems to provide a good GUI for mpd :-) - Mar 20 2012
I've built without KDE support and got this message:
"Building WITHOUT KDE support - Device Sync, Track Organizer, ReplayGain, and CommandLine support DISABLED"

Why is ReplayGain disabled? This is handled by mpd anyway, isn't it? - Mar 20 2012

Forget it, they have switched to git... - Apr 13 2010
I have this error:
gtkrc:110: error: unexpected identifier `arrowstyle', expected character `}'

But I have Murrine svn r174 and there is no newer version in svn available. - Apr 13 2010

Forgot to say: This warning breaks a lot of Xdialog config tools here because Xdialog writes it's output to stderr and the warning is getting there, too. - Aug 01 2009
Fixed by using Firefox :-/ - Aug 01 2009
I'm getting this warning when I'm using this theme:
Gtk-WARNING (recursed) **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",

Is there anything related to murrine engine in this theme? Theme works nice without murrine engine installed. - Aug 01 2009
The theme doesn't work well with Iceweasel here:
1. No scrollbars
2. No borders around any elements
3. Selected menu item is not highlighted

Any idea about this? - May 17 2009

The script submits the tracks at the beginning of the song and not after 50 %. - Jul 15 2009

The Tango/Gnome icons are better usable at smaller sizes than these shiny looking new stuff on "modern" desktop enviroments. - Feb 26 2009

Hi!
Could you please change the file name of the download to a name without space?
I'm using your theme as default in Zenwalk's murrine-engine package and the %20 is a problem in the buildscript.

Greetings
Thorsten - Jan 16 2009
Hi!
Please fix the themes for latest Murrine SVN version:

/usr/share/themes/Murrine Wise/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:121: Murrine configuration option "lightborder_ratio" will be deprecated in future releases. Please use "lightborder_shade" instead.
/usr/share/themes/Murrine Wise/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:123: Murrine configuration option "highlight_ratio" will be deprecated in future releases. Please use "highlight_shade" instead.

Sadly there are so many missing icons and I don't know which fallback icon theme would fit to this look. So please suggest one or add more icons :-D - Nov 27 2008

Hi! The index.theme file should have a line "Inherits=Tango,gnome,hicolor,crystalsvg" to use these icon themes as fallback, if some icons are missing. - Mar 23 2008
