Installation.
For most distributions packages of gmpc are available in the repositories, some even ship plugins. If you install a gmpc from the repository check if the package is recent. For example ubuntu shipped a 2 year old version until recently, suse on the other hand ships the latest stable version including all the stable plugins.

Source.
If you installed gmpc from your distro's repository, uninstall gmpc and libmpd first .
To intstall gmpc you need the following programs to be installed:
* gcc compiler
   * libtool
   * intltool Version 0.21 or higher
   * glib
   * libcurl
   * libsoup
   * gobject
   * gtk+-2.0
   * gmodule
   * libglade
   * gthreads
   * libmpd
   * gob 2.0
   * hicolor theme


Install libmpd.

Get a copy of libmpd and extract it:

tar -zxf libmpd-0.18.0.tar.gz

Enter the directory:

cd libmpd-0.18.0/

Run the needed autotools:

./configure

Watch the output carefully for errors. If it was succesfull build libmpd:

make

And install it (you might want to run this as root):

make install

Install gmpc.

Get a copy of gmpc and extract it:

tar -zxf gmpc-0.18.0.tar.gz

Enter the directory:

cd gmpc-0.18.0/

Run the needed autotools:

./configure

If it complains about not finding libmpd, make sure you have it installed and pkg-config can find it. For example if you installed libmpd in /opt and pkg-config cannot find it try telling it where to look by setting the following environment variable:


export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig/


and rerun configure


If it was succesfull you can build gmpc


make


And install it (you might want to run this as root):


make install


Don't forget this step, gmpc won't run without this step.


If everything went smooth, you should be able to run gmpc.



Install a gmpc plugin.


For this example I use the coveramazon plugin, but it applies for all plugins:


Get a copy of the plugin and extract it:


tar -zxf gmpc-coveramazon-0.18.0.tar.gz


Enter the directory:


cd gmpc-coveramazon-0.18.0/


Run the needed autotools:


./configure


If it complains about not finding libmpd or gmpc, make sure you have it installed and pkg-config can find it. For example if you installed libmpd in /opt and pkg-config cannot find it try telling it where to look by setting the following environment variable:


export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig/


and rerun autogen.sh


If it was succesfull you can build gmpc-coveramazon


make


And install it (you might want to run this as root):


make install


If everything went smooth, after restarting gmpc, you should be able to see this plugin in gmpc.
