Media player remote/media keys problem

Asked by Buz Finork on 2012-09-19

I have Nuvola v2 xubuntu 12.04
I have enabled both the media keys and media player remote plugins.
So i can play/puse from dockbarx and the soudmenu
but if a use "mpris-remote pause" to try to play/pause, Nuvola the error it gives says:
No MPRIS-compliant player found running.
and as the media player remote plugin says that is uses that it would work
so what would be a solution to this problem?

I am playing pandora when this happens

As I use xfce to does not have a keyboard media keys control system like gnome or unity have so I use mpris-remote as it seems to work the best

Ok looking at the previos question I have found a answer to the problem
I made a few scripts to solve this problem below is the script that I use to control the player:

#! /bin/bash

mpris-remote pause
if [ "$(pidof nuvolaplayer)" ]
then
  nuvolaplayer-client toggle
fi

I changed the commands for the respective scripts to next/prev, any way it now works the way I want it to

mpris-remote uses old version of MPRIS specification (1.0), whereas Nuvola Player provides only new version (2.0), so the programs are incompatible.
