13 To install this module type the following:
15 perl Makefile.PL
17 make test
18 make install
21 There is a sample config file under examples. A sample init file that I
22 use for gentoo linux is there as well.
25 Edit the sample config file and copy to /etc/musicmpdscrobble.conf or
28 Test your configuration by issue the command
30 musicmpdscrobble --logfile=STDERR --monitor
32 and playing some music.
34 If it works, then the command
36 musicmpdscrobble --daemonize
38 will run musicmpdscrobble as a daemon. Please see examples for a sample
39 init script. If you make an init script for your distribution, please
40 send it to me!
43 This module requires these other modules and libraries:
53 I strongly encourage you to also install my module
57 This will allow you to read info from the file tag (such as the
58 MusicBrainz ID).
60 The version info in the Makefile is based on what I use. You can get
61 away with older versions in many cases.
