XMMS2-LAUNCHER(1)           General Commands Manual          XMMS2-LAUNCHER(1)



NAME
       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.

OPTIONS
       Unrecognized options and options occuring beyond pseudo-option -- are
       passed to xmms2d(1).

       -l file, --logfile=file
              Write log to file instead of the default log file location.

       -P file, --pidfile=file
              Write the pid of xmms2d(1) to file.

       -v, --verbose
              Make xmms2-launcher verbose.

       -?, -h, --help
              Show short help information and exit.

       --     Options beyond this marker are passed to xmms2d(1).
