Exec "I" exec /usr/local/bin/mpg123+ -b 1024 -@ ~/.music/list > ~/.music/log 2>&1 &
in your ~/.fvwmrc, where ~/.music/list is a pipe that you write the
directory/song you want played as text, and, put:
Exec "Pause" exec killall -STOP mpg123+ > /dev/null 2>&1 &
Exec "Continue after pause" exec killall -CONT mpg123+ > /dev/null 2>&1 &
Exec "Skip to next in sequence" exec killall -INT mpg123+ > /dev/null 2>&1 &
Exec "Start" exec /usr/local/bin/mpg123+ -b 1024 -@ ~/.music/list > ~/.music/log 2>&1 &
Exec "Stop" exec killall -TERM mpg123+ > /dev/null 2>&1 &
in a popup menu, (perhaps with your songs,) and you can pause, skip,
stop songs, etc.
A cheap way of doing an mp3 player using fvwm's menus.
