Reply To: mt-daapd Automatic Startup Upon Ubuntu Startup [solved]



Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been pretty busy and I had some problems with my partitions that led me to re-install completely my system.

So here’s what I did for Ubuntu 6.10:

– Install all the packages that Firefly needs (do not forget sqlite…), build-essential, libahavi-client-dev, libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 (not sure if this is actually required).

– edit /etc/default/avahi-daemon: AVAHI_DAEMON_START = 1

– In System > Administration > Services: enable Mulitcast Service DNS Discovery

# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
# cd /usr/local/src/
# wget
# tar zxvf mt-daapd-svn-1489.tar.gz
# cd /usr/local/src/mt-daapd-svn-1489
# ./configure –prefix=/usr –sysconfdir=/etc –enable-sqlite –enable-oggvorbis –enable-flac –enable-avahi
# make
# make install
# cp /usr/local/src/mt-daapd-svn-1489/contrib/mt-daapd.conf /etc/

– edit your /etc/mt-daapd.conf

# update-rc.d mt-daapd defaults

– edit /etc/rc.local and add: mt-daapd start

TA-DAH! It works, and it starts all by itself 🙂

Well… OK, I still have a (small) problem. Firefly works fine, I can see the music in iTunes on a Windows PC and in Banshee on my system. But for some reason I can’t see anything in Rhythmbox. That’s too bad, cause I prefer it.

… Any ideas? 🙂
