xmms2-launcher — XMMS2 daemon launcher

Synopsis

xmms2-launcher [-l file] [-P file] [-v] [--] [XMMS2D_OPTION] ...
xmms2-launcher -h

Description

XMMS2 is a redesign of the XMMS (http://legacy.xmms2.org) music player. It features a client-server model, allowing multiple (even simultaneous!) user interfaces, both textual and graphical. All common audio formats are supported using plugins. On top of this, there is a flexible media library to organise your music.

xmms2-launcher starts xmms2d(1) in the background. The main feature is that it does not exit until the IPC system of XMMS2 is available, meaning that as soon as the xmms2-launcher process has exited successfully xmms2d(1) is ready to accept commands.
